ProXPN and OpenVPN

Alex, October 16, 2015 14:59
I was informed by Steve Gibson stacksocial was having a sale on ProXPN packages. One time fee of $39 for Premium Lifetime Subscription. No idea how they think they can keep providing services for the next 10 years for that amount but I was willing to risk $39 from a prepaid credit card.

The deal is real

I really received a lifetime subscription package: a login and password. I was instructed to download software for my phone and laptops to start using their VPN services. I have installed many OpenVPN clients and servers and I would rather have a openvpn configuration file instead of a new program.
There was no such thing offered on their website but they did offer a linux "program". I extracted the files and found an OpenVPN configuration file. I slightly modified it and you can see the result below

OpenVPN configuration for ProXPN

Below you can find the proxpn-us.ovpn file I use for my own connections. You will need to provide your own username and password ofcourse in the proxpn-password.txt file. First line contains the username, second line the password.
