Viscocity OpenVPN client Set-up
October 15, 2015

Viscosity is a popular OpenVPN client for Mac OS X and Windows. Unlike official OpenVPN client, it allows to manually enter all the settings using a GUI (official client asks for config files). The set-up process is fairly simple but it requires entering a lot of different settings. Today we showcase how you can easily do that.
