Setting up OpenVPN on OSX
(If you have previously installed one of our deployed versions, please see the uninstall instructions below first then return here)


  • Download the latest stable release tunnelblick for your version of OSX and install it.
  • When it gets to the setup prompt for installing configs, click I have configuration files, then click OK on the next prompt.
  • Download the following zip file:
  • Unzip then doubleclick on the tblk icon to import the config files.
  • You will be prompted for your admin password to complete the configuration import.
  • To connect to the vpn click on the closed Tunnelblick icon and select the server you wish to connect to.

  • Once connected all traffic should be passing through the VPN
  • Check here to verify it is. The IP and name shown should be for, not your ISP.
Uninstalling a previous deployed version of Tunnelblick
  • Download Tunnelblick's official uninstaller
  • Drag the icon for the currently installed version onto the uninstall icon after download and open.
  • It is important that you properly uninstall any and all deployed versions of Tunnelblick before installing the latest.
  • Once all are uninstalled, return to the instructions above for installing the latest with our configurations.

Common Issues

If you cannot connect to some sites (like facebook or youtube):

  • This is most often the result of either a "poisoned" DNS cache (by poisoned we mean cached blocked values from before VPN launch) or DNS leaks (see clearing your DNS cache and DNS Leaks)
  • If Snow Leopard, see listing about the DHCP DNS push not being properly handled under common issues.
