For Windows we recommend to use SoftEther VPN Client

 

Note: to use this software you need a VPN account. Register & request here.

 

First you need to get the OpenVPN client from the official site.

Download the installer for your Windows version, 32 or 64 bit. 

Afther finishing the download start the installation by opening the openvpn-install file that you have downloaded.

It will ask if you allow the program to make changes to your computer, click "yes". 

Click Next >

Agree to the terms of the license.

Leave the selected components as they are and click Next >

 

If you want a different installation folder change the destinationg, if not just click Install.

Check the "Always trust software.." box and click Install.

Installation complete! Click Next > 

Uncheck the "Show Readme" box if you don't want to see the Readme file and click Finish.

 

Now you have to copy the configuration files and certificates in the config folder of the OpenVPN Client (Program files / OpenVPN / Config). Download and unzip the configuration files from the client area (you need to login).

They may be more / different files in your config folder.

 

For Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, go to Program files / OpenVPN / bin and right click on the openvpn-gui.exe file. Choose properties, go to compatibility tab, check the "Run this program in compatibility mode" option and select Windows Vista Service Pack 2.
