How do you want to connect?
For Shared IP VPN Service Users: Here you choose the TUVPN.COM VPN node to which you wish to connect.
You can change your node selection at any time.
For Dedicated IP VPN Service Users: You MUST choose the VPN Server for which you have subscribed
As Destination name we choose TUVPN.
Finally, click Next.

Enter your VPN username and VPN password that was sent to you in an email entitled TUVPN.COM Service Activation after you signed up and paid for your vpn service.
Tick the box Remember this password. Click Connect.
Type your username and password
You will now see this window as your username and password is verified and the connection is established with TUVPN servers. Please be patient as this may take a minute or two. You do not have to do anything when you see this window....just wait.

Connecting to TUVPN...
When you see this window, you have been Connected. Congratulations!
You are connected
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!
If you put 'vpn.tuvpn.com' as the internet address during the setup, this randomly chooses any one of the TUVPN global servers. So you may see an IP for any one of our global vpn server addresses.
Enjoy your new freedom and security!
