Firstly, please forgive the Spanish images (we grew up being just Spanish!). We will be replacing these with English very soon. In the mean time we hope that the steps we take you through are clear enough for you to follow.
Tunnelblick is a ready-to-use graphical OpenVPN client for Mac OS X.
You can download the Tunnelblick client from: http://code.google.com/p/tunnelblick/
We drag&dropTunnelblick into your Applications folder.
Within the Applications folder, Run the Tunnelblick client.
A security window will pop-up asking if you are sure you want to open the Tunnelblick client. Click, Open.
Here you will be asked to input your MAC username and password (NOT your TUVPN username and password!) Click, OK.
MAC Username & Password.
Delete the Configuration file called openvpn.conf from the openvpn folder found at Library -> openvpn
Delete Config File
When asked if you want to install a configuration file, press EXIT.
No Configuration File
You will see a window with a configuration file. Close this window.
We now download the zip file containing the OpenVPN configuration files of TUVPN.COM:
Download TUVPN Configuration
Important Note For Dedicated IP VPN Service Users: Before importing openvpn.conf file, Dedicated users MUST enter the VPN Server for which they have subscribed. This is done by simply editing the openvpn.conf file and replacing the line vpn.tuvpn.com with the VPN server you have susbscribed to.
We now move the OpenVPN configuration files that we just downloaded to the openvpn folder found at Library/openvpn.
Move TUVPN Setting Files.
Open the Tunnelblick menu via the icon at the top right-hand corner of your screen, and click on Connect 'openvpn'.
Connect To Your TUVPN.COM Service.
Here you enter the VPN username and password that was sent to you in an email from TUVPN.COM called, "TUVPN.COM Service Activation". Then click, OK.
VPN Username & Password.
If you wish to confirm that you really are now enjoying new freedoms, security and anonymity on the Internet, go to an IP identification site (e.g. www.whatismyipaddress.com ) where you can see that your IP is now a TUVPN server node in an entirely new location....and probably a new country!
Enjoy your new freedom and security!
Confirm You Are Connected.
