OpenVPN Connect application can be used as an alternative way to connect to our servers.
1. First download the CyberGhost VPN configuration files from your online account
Log in in your account > Tap on the menu on top-right of the screen > 'Download Hub' :
Scroll down and then tap the "Configure" button next to the "Other" devices entry:
Create your server configuration, as described below :
- Protocol : OpenVPN
- Country : Since native protocol connections may only be used with exactly one server you now have to choose the country you want to surf from; the server to be used in this country will be chosen by CyberGhost automatically.
- Server group : Choose the server group and the OpenVPN protocol (UDP or TCP) you want to use
OpenVPN UDP allows higher speed than the TCP version but can result in broken downloads in some cases. This is the default setting.
OpenVPN TCP allows more stable connections than the UDP version but is a bit slower. Choose this version, if you have recurrent connection issues such as sudden disconnections.
Once the desired parameters are chosen, save them with « Save Configuration » :
After the configuration is saved, you will be redirected to the "VPN" section of your web-account, from where you can see all the linked devices and existing configurations.
To view the OpenVPN credentials that were generated for you on the configuration dashboard, tap on "View", after having identified from the list the configuration you need to see.
