OpenVPN Configuration Setup on Android

You can connect to DNSFlex VPN servers using the OpenVPN open source software.  DNSFlex VPN App is currently under development.



Step 1 – Add VPN Username or SOCKS Authorised IP’s


Log into the DNSFLEX members area dashboard here.  If you are using the VPN service – create a VPN username and password, if you are using the SOCKS Proxies – enter your authorised IP’s.   If you plan to use both VPN and SOCKS then configure both VPN username and SOCKS Proxies Authorised IP.





Step 2 – Choose your IP Type


This section allows you to choose what type of IP you want your VPN endpoint to connect to.    Please read the pop up article “which to choose” to fully understand the different use cases in order to make the correct choice.






Step 3 – Download OpenVPN Configuration Files


The next step, you must download the VPN server configuration files necessary so that the OpenVPN Software knows where to connect to.   Download the lone configuration file in the members are dashboard.  This will be the only config file required to connect to all your IP endpoints.

To connect to SOCKS Proxies, copy the SOCKS endpoint host name and port and enter it into your proxy software.
