#####2. CA or server certificate/ copy and paste it into a file like this: ca.crt ####

####4. Private key - keep this secret for you / copy and paste this into a file like this: user.key ####

####5. TLS Authentication key - configure on the OPENVPN client with key-direction 1 / copy and paste the key into a file like this: tls-auth.key ####

</tls-auth>

These details are important if you want to connect to our OPENVPN server.

TUTORIAL:

If you want to connect to an Android phone or Iphone, the .ovpn can be directly used in OpenVPN connect App. Download the application then import the .ovpn file after you put the file in the external or internal storage of your phone.

If you want to configure this on your desktop or laptop PC that uses Windows, Mac, and Linux, the configuration file can be easily imported to the OPENVPN client. Make sure you use the latest OPENVPN client at https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html

However, there are times that you need to configure it manually. If that so, you will have to copy and paste the certificates and keys into separate certificates and keys as explained above.

For further details of the installation of the OPENVPN client and account in Windows, Mac, and Linux please read the article at https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html

If you any further questions please contact us https://unlimited-hosting.club/clients/contact.php

Good luck!
