What is it?

Profile is the term used to describe a configuration file that has a .ovpn file extension. This file provides any OpenVPN compatible client software with the necessary digital certificates and configuration details to connect to an OpenVPN Cloud VPN region.

Who should use this?

A user can import a profile into the OpenVPN Connect client directly by using the URL of the user portal and passing authentication. A user can also import any received .ovpn file into the Connect client.

An administrator can download and use the profile with connector software that is necessary for connecting a network or host to the VPN.

Why should I use this?

A profile has the digital certificates needed to pass basic authentication needed to connect to OpenVPN Cloud and is needed to configure the OpenVPN Client for connections to a specific VPN Region.
