How to Download Manual OpenVPN Config File

You can download the manual OpenVPN configuration file from the UTunnel web console by following the instructions below. Before you can download the OpenVPN configuration file for an Access Gateway, you need to enable manual OpenVPN connections first from the access gateway settings.

To enhance security, UTunnel uses certificate-based authentication for VPN sessions, and this certificate is included in the configuration you download from the UTunnel dashboard. By default, the validity of this certificate is 30 days. You will not be able to establish VPN connections once the certificate is expired. In such cases, you will need to download the new configuration file and use it to establish a VPN connection. The expiry period is configurable; it can be extended up to 180 days. To reset the certificate expiry period, login to the UTunnel dashboard as an access gateway admin, go to access gateway's Settings page, and modify the value for Renewal interval for OVPN manual certificate parameter.

1. Log into the UTunnel web console and navigate to the Access Gateway tab.
