Bytz VPN - Windows Installation

Download the OpenVPN Client

Download OpenVPN Client for Windows (Zip)



Next, download the ovpn profile files which you will use later. Click the profile links below and the files should download to your Downloads folder.

If you are on the BytzTOR plan, you only need the TOR ovpn.



VPN Profiles
VPN Profiles are your choices of VPN servers. Each one represents a server location or a pool of servers in a location. Each pool area represents a location where we have servers.

The NoAds profiles are ones that have DNS blocking of ad domains using a pi-hole server.

Usually, the closest server to you is the fastest and best choice for performance. But you can use any location that suits your purpose.

VIDEO OF SETUP


Here's a VIDEO showing steps for section A and B below.

(2) Select Import Profile for each of the listed ".opvpn" files.




(3) Next, you will be able to see the VPN options on the icon when you right-click on it again. Select the VPN you want to connect to. Note that profiles with TOR indicated on the profile connect through the TOR Relay. They are slower but more secure.






(4) Use the login credentials provided to you to login and connect. Note that there will be an additional prompt for a Private Key phrase which is a second password that's part of the credentials.


(5) You can only use one VPN at a time. Disconnect from one VPN before switching to the other.

(3) Fill in and follow the next few dialog boxes as shown below.



(4) On this dialog window below, you will have to find the openvpn-gui.exe which will usually be c:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe.

Then in the "Add Arguments" box, you have to fill in the ".ovpn" connection you want to auto-start.

--connect BytzVPNWest1.ovpn
Example only! Change to the ovpn file name you want to auto start with..




(5) Confirm that everything is correct and FINISH.



(6) If you make a mistake or want to reconfigure the task, start Task Scheduler again, find the OpenVPN task and Edit Properties.
