No matter how hard I try, I cannot succesfully connect to OpenVPN.

Depending on where you are located on the planet, you might be subject to various governmental or authoritative restrictions. Indeed, some governments and authorities think it is better for the entity they administer to block certain technologies or certain communications protocols. As a result, default OpenVPN ports are often blocked by authorities seeking to prevent anonymity across their networks.

Our OpenVPN servers are running on multiple ports and you can edit any .ovpn configuration file in order to change the port. In order to achieve that, simply edit the .ovpn file with Notepad or any text editor. Locate the line where it says "remote ip port" such as "remote 167.24.56.23 443" and change the last digits by the port you wish to use. The full list of ports through which our OpenVPN tunnels are accessible is listing below:

TCP 80
TCP 110
TCP 443 
TCP 843   
UDP 53  
UDP 1194
UDP 1443
UDP 8080
UDP 9201

We may also deploy OpenVPN on any TCP or UDP custom port you wish, for a reasonable additional fee or a minimum commitment of one year on your package. To do that, just contact our sales team.
