Connecting via OpenVPN GUI

To ensure a hassle-free setup, we strongly recommend using our dedicated VPN application for Windows. If you have opted for OpenVPN GUI for connection and are unsure how to configure it, follow the instructions below.

Installation of Application and Configuration Files

If you already have a trial or premium access code, enter it on the VPN page and click Connect. Then, in your account, select Computer > Windows > OpenVPN and download the TCP or UDP configuration.

Protocol Differences:

  • TCP Compatibility (more suitable for browser work)
  • Low Ping UDP (suitable for gaming, torrents)

Once you have downloaded the configuration files, download and install the OpenVPN GUI client for your operating system from the official website.

Next, unzip the previously downloaded archive with the configuration files. Inside, you will find a folder named «windows.» Copy the contents of this folder by selecting them and pressing Ctrl + C.

Locate the installed OpenVPN GUI program, typically found at C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config. Navigate to this location and press Ctrl + V to paste the copied files.

Initial Connection and VPN Functionality Check

Find the OpenVPN GUI application on your desktop, right-click, and choose «Run as administrator.«

The program will launch and can be found in the system tray at the bottom right corner near the clock. Right-click the OpenVPN GUI icon, select your desired server from the list, and click «Connect.«

After connecting, open a web page in your browser and check for a change in the IP address. If the IP address has changed, your VPN is functioning correctly.


If the connection fails to establish or you encounter another issue:

Don’t forget to send us the connection log along with a description of the problem:
