ExpressVPN's website only allows to download configuration files for UDP port.
How can I convert the configuration file to use TCP ports?
Here is the file, with subscription information abridged.
Code: Select all
remote <ABRIDGED>.com 1195
verify-x509-name Server name-prefix
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
# 2048 bit OpenVPN static key
-----END OpenVPN Static key V1-----

If your provider does not provide service on TCP, you cannot access their service on TCP.
Also, we can't and won't support VPN service providers here. Talk to them.
Also, TCP for a VPN is generally a bad idea. Stick with UDP if you can. If stupid firewalls make that impossible for you and you can't change them, find a provider that supports TCP. I can suggest that you look at a cloud-hosted OpenVPN Access Server
. A two-connection license of Access Server is free, but you'd probably have to pay for a cloud service VPS.
