Set Up Completion
This is a very important step for the proper functioning of the OpenVPN software with Windows 7.
We have to make sure that we run OpenVPN GUI (the program that we will use to connect/disconnect to TUVPN) as Administrator. This will ensure a trouble-free experience with your VPN.
Click on the Start button, then All Programs, then scroll to find the OpenVPN folder and left-click on this folder. This will expand the folder. Now right-click over OpenVPN GUI, and select Properties.
OpenVPN GUI Properties
In the 'OpenVPN GUI Properties' window, select the tab called Compatibility.
Now make sure the 'Run this program as an administrator' box under 'Privilege Level' is checked i.e Ticked. Then click, OK.
You are now ready to start connecting to your VPN using the OpenVPN software!
Run Program as Administrator
Double-click on the OpenVPN GUI shortcut icon on your desktop.
You may then see a Windows security message pop up in a window entitled "User Account Control". It will say. "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?". Just click, Yes.
Left-click on the 'up arrow' in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. You will then see the OpenVPN Gui icon.
Shared VPN Users: Right-click over the OpenVPN icon, select server of your choice from menu and click on Connect
Dedicated IP VPN Users: Right-click over the OpenVPN icon, select your subscribed server from menu and click on Connect
Now input the TUVPN username and password that was emailed to you after payment of your subscription. The title of the email was, "TUVPN.COM Service Activation". Then click, OK.
You should now be connected! You will notice that the two small screens on the OpenVPN icon should now have changed from red to green. When they are green....you are connected.
To disconnect from the VPN network, right-click over the OpenVPN icon and click Disconnect.
TUVPN is now 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!
Enjoy your new freedom and security!
Confirmation of successful connection to your VPN.
