    Open the path C:Program FilesOpenVPNconfig and copy the contents of the archive inside. Administrator authorization will be required, allow copying for all files in the archive.
  2. User specific installation: This method allows the connection via the digital VPN certificate to the only user with whom the user logged in on the PC.
    Open the path C:UsersusernameOpenVPNconfig and copy the contents of the archive inside.
  3. Directly import the “.ovpn” file, generated as a single file (config + cert + keys). This method allows the connection via the digital VPN certificate to the only user with whom the user logged in on the PC.
