1. You must download OpenVPN Client for windows from : and install it.

2. Download this configure file : OpenVPN Client for Windows

3. After you downloaded ,this file must be edited by change IP/HostName of OpenVPN server to your OpenVPN server such as :

# host name of the OpenVPN server. Very useful
# on machines which are not permanently connected
# to the internet such as laptops.
