3. Now click “Add Device” as per below

4. You will see a pop-up like below. Choose a “Friendly Name” and then click “Add”

5. Next, click on “Manual Connection” for this device.

6. You’ll see a pop-out like below. Make a note of your “Username” and “Password”.

You can select the location you want to connect this device to and then click to “Download OpenVPN Config”

You should see a download complete notification appear after clicking the download button.

7. Now launch OpenVPN. One the home screen, select “OVPN Profile” option.

8. Then find the “Download” folder.

9. Select the VPNCity ovpn config file and then click “Import” in the top right.
