OpenVPN for any OS

The basic procedure for setting up a tunnel to proxy.sh OpenVPN server on your OS is to download the OpenVPN software for your OS and have it installed. Once you have done that, simply import the .ovpn & .crt (certificate) files available for download via a link found in your welcome email or via your active VPN package product details in the panel (or you can use our configuration files generator), and use your proxy.sh credentials as username/password, if necessary.

Of course, you are recommended to do your own research to achieve that, but if you want us to write a tutorial for your OS and that one for the latter is not yet available, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

NB: If you encounter difficulties to connect with OpenVPN, please try to connect to other servers or try alternative ports, especially more "discreet" ones such as TCP 443 or TCP 80. Please also make sure that the port you are connecting through is fully opened in your firewall/router/network. Below, you will find an aggregate of useful guides and articles that will help you troubleshoot your problems, should you have any.

I cannot find the .ovpn and .crt files necessary for OpenVPN. Where are they?
No matter how hard I try, I cannot succesfully connect to OpenVPN.
I can't access any website through my browser while connected to VPN.
I am connected to the VPN but my IP is not yet hidden. Help!
I am having some kind of other problem. Where can I find some help?
How can I find the local log files of my VPN client?

If you still cannot connect successfully, please open a support ticket and include either a copy of your logs or a screenshot of your configuration and encountered errors. Logs can usually be found in software menus or settings, as well as their directories of installation (.log or .txt files). If you do not include a log or a screenshot, it will be hard for us to help you resolve the issues you have with connecting to our network.
