OpenVPN does not, by default, save usernames and/or passwords, requiring you to enter this information each and every time you connect to a VPN server. While is this good from a security perspective, it can be an annoyance.
Please see below for instructions to change this:
1. Locate the OpenVPN config folder on your computer. Please see below for details pertaining to your operating system / client (if using Mac) for typical file paths:
- Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config
- Linux: /etc/openvpn
- Mac (Using Tunnelblick): ~/Library/Application Support/Tunnelblick/Configurations
- Mac (Using Viscosity): ~/Library/Application Support/Viscosity/Configurations
2. Create a new text file in the Configurations file; name the newly-created file "auth.txt", and enter the following information. Save the file one you have entered the following 2 lines:
- 1st line of text file: Enter only your account username
- 2nd line of text file: Enter only your account password
3. Open your OpenVPN configuration file (.opvn extension) in a text editor (If you are on a Windows computer; open the file using Notepad++ instead of Notepad). Locate "auth-user-pass", and change this read as "auth-user-pass auth.txt" (the newly-created file which contains your username and password). Save this file.
4. Restart your OpenVPN client.
5. Connect to one of our servers. You will now be able to connect to our servers without having to enter your username and password again.
