Installing the OpenVPN software on a mac

Installing the OpenVPN software on a mac

The software that we provide is for windows only and it's modified by us in order to submit the authentication credentials automatically without you having to enter them manually.

For a mac you will have to download OpenVPN and install it. We can't compile it so you will just have to pay attention in order to retrieve the VPN user/pass from the configs file you download.

 

  1. Download and install the mac OpenVPN software

    The OpenVPN version for mac that we tried and tested is called Viscosity and can be downloaded from the apple website:
    http://www.sparklabs.com/viscosity/ 

    Once downloaded simply install the software and we can move on to the next step in our tutorial 

     
  2. Download the VPN config files from our website

    Once installed, the VPN software needs the config files to connect to the VPN you just purchased so go ahead and download them from "My account >  My VPNs > Download all config files"

    After you download the zip archive you have to extract the contents to the installation path of Viscosity/OpenVPN, inside the "config" folder.

     
  3. Finding out the username and password

    With the config files in place you can connect to your VPN but it will prompt you to enter your username and password so we just need to find out where they are. You will need to go inside the same "config" folder and open the folder which has a numerical name such as "41" for example. Inside that folder you will find a text file with also a numerical name such as "1234.txt". Open that file and you will see your username and password each on a new line. First line is the username, second line is the password so just use them in the authentication box of Viscosity. Hit connect and it should run.
