OpenVPN solution for Macbook

Post by profodes » Thu Feb 07, 2019 9:11 pm

Hello all,

A few years I'm running OpenVPN using a Pi in The Netherlands. I've always been able to connect to it to have a secured internet connection on my Windows laptop, iPad and iPhone.

A few weeks ago I bought a Macbook. So I would like to use openVPN on my MacBook as well. I created a certificate for my MacBook but I can't find the program for Macbook which supports the certificate...

Can someone tell me which program I have to download for my MacBook?

Kind regards,


PS. Did someone find a solution already for the problem when you start the vpn... you have to delete the Log file first before you can get a connection?

Definitely Tunnelblick, it's free and can be used with OS X and macOS.

There is also the OpenVPN Connect which runs on Mac OSX.

The Mac client can be downloaded here (I am using the beta version 3.0.1 OK but you might prefer the stable version ... ith-macos/
