Setting Up OpenVPN for Ubuntu OS

To set up a VPN connection on Ubuntu, install/update the Network Manager plugin for OpenVPN if it is not already installed on the system. Start the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the command in it:

sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome

and confirm the installation of the package and dependencies with the "Y" key:

Terminal Ubuntu

After that, download the OpenVPN configuration file (client ** - tcp.ovpn or client ** - udp.ovpn) to your device using a link like http://XX.XX.XX.XX:XXXX/mS84McHrsn/ that you received by email when activating the service, if this package was not installed in the system earlier:

Select a previously saved configuration file client**-tcp.ovpn or client**-udp.ovpn.
