I guess we can start with Mac. You can use the Viscosity for $9. You can also use the TunnelBlick which is what I am going to be using here. Download the latest stable release of TunnelBlick, and install it.
Before we start, make sure that you have exported the client vpn profile from OpenVPN server. I got mine from my OPNsense (see the previous post).
Once the TunnelBlick is installed, open the app and you will be prompted with the Welcome message.
After clicking the OK button, the app will be in the menu bar
Click on it then select VPN Details. This will open the app
There are two ways to install the VPN profile. You can either drag and drop the .conf file or right click the .conf file and select TunnelBlick. Either one will install the profile. You can either drag and drop the .conf file or right click the .conf file and select TunnelBlick. Either one will install the profile.
You will get a pop-up prompt for the configuration install. Click on Only Me. After this, you may get a prompt to allow the installation by entering the admin user’s credential.
Once the profile is installed, then you can connect to the VPN
After installing the config file, you can rename this config file to any name that makes sense to you by click on the cog or gear icon > Rename configuration in the lower left corner.
Once you are connected, you can see the icon will change and if you hover your pointer to the TunnelBlick icon, you will see some data.
This is pretty much it. Cheers!!!
