VPNBOOK – Upgrade to OpenVPN Client – took place 23rd December 2012
**All existing VPNBOOK users***
OpenVPN have issued a major upgrade to the OpenVPN software, from 23rd December.
If you have problems connecting (ie get a yellow light on OpenVPN and it won’t connect, you need to do the upgrade) – which is in 2 steps.
Step 1 – Download the new OpenVPN client to Client 2.3 rc2
Step 2 – Download your new OpenVPN certificates
Remember, you’ll need winzip to extract both the config and the certificate.
Select the correct port that you’re using…
Copy both files to c: program files > OpenVPN > config
Now test your connection…. OpenVPN will turn green and authenticate you.
You might want to set up an automatic login while you’re upgrading.
- Go to c: program files > OpenVPN > Config (the orange icon file).
- Open this in notepad (with admin rights, or you won’t be able to save).
- Find the line which says auth-user-pass (leave a space) and type in “password.txt”
Full instructions for setting up automatic login are here:

New certificates needed for all ports
If you use all 4 services on VPNbook, you’ll need to reload 4 updated certificates – and edit them to include automatic login, which makes using the VPN much easier.
