For this tutorial we used Ubuntu 16 however the procedure is mostly the same on other linux desktop distributions.


1. You need to have installed the following: OpenVPN, NetworkManager, NetworkManager-OpenVPN.

For Ubuntu users: sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn openvpn

2. Extract the configuration files (you have received them via e-mail or you can download them from the client area)

3. Under Network Manager go to VPN connections > Configure VPN and click the “Add” button.


4. Choose “Import a saved VPN configuration” from the list.


5. Select the VPN server configuration that you want to add from your computer.


6. Type your VPN user and password and click “Save”


7. Now you have your firs VPN connection saved. 


8. Do the above steps again for each VPN server that you want to add.
