After you buy your BGOcloud OpenVPN server, install the OpenVPN Connect Client from Apple App Store.

Go to https://<your OpenVPN Access Server IP> in your browser. You can see your IP in the e-mail we have sent you or in the client area. It will display a self-signed certificate warning. Your BGOcloud OpenVPN server generates a self-signed certificate specially for itself. Just tap on “Show details” and then on “visit this website.”
Tap again on “Visit Website” to access your OpenVPN server.

Step 4: Downloading Profile
You will be presented with clients for most OS. Since you’ve already downloaded the OpenVPN Connect Client, you will need to download only the profile. Scroll a bit and tap on “Yourself (user-locked profile)”.
Step 5: Importing Your Profile
Open the file and share it.

Tap on “ADD”
Step 6: OpenVPN Access Server Profile Customizations
After that, if you want, you can change the profile name and save the user password by checking Save Password and entering it in the field below. To test the connection, tap on “CONNECT”.
