The setup is really simple. A video of the setup is accessible from our YouTube Channel here.

Installation Guide - Windows:

#1 Download and install the OpenVPN software using this link: here
#2 Log into Members Area and download your config files: here
#3 Extract the content (YourUsername.ovpn + nVPN.crt) into the "config" directory of OpenVPN, which is usually located at "C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config" and on 64-Bit it's "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config"
#4 IMPORTANT!: Make sure you uninstall ALL other previously installed VPN software (HMA, ProXPN, UltraVPN, etc) or they will interfere with each other when trying to connect.
#5 IMPORTANT!: If you use Windows 8/7/Vista, always run OpenVPN as Administrator, otherwise your IP will NOT change!
#5.1 To automatically run as admin every time: right-click the OpenVPN shortcut, click properties and in the compatibility tab select the 'Run this program as an Administrator' check box.
#6 Right Click the OpenVPN icon in your tray and click 'Connect'
#7 Enter your Username and Password and press OK
#8 Verify if it is working: Go to http://check.nvpn.net
