Saving password in the openvpn. client

In order not to enter authorization data manually every time you connect, create a txt file in the same directory where ####.ovpn is located, for example, auth.txt, and add to it two lines: first login, second password. Example

user_100  
password123  

Then in the configuration file ####.ovpn add a line:

auth-user-pass auth.txt  

Important: The username and password will be stored in unencrypted form, so we recommend that you check your computer for malware and make sure no unauthorized persons have access to it before setting up automatic authorization. It is advisable to edit the fornex.ovpn* file using special editors, for example, Notepad++, AkelPad, PSPad, etc.


In some cases your provider may restrict access to Internet resources, then you need to use public DNS!
Change the DNS servers in your network connection settings to something like this:

1.1.1.1  
8.8.8.8
