STEP 1 - Download the OpenVPN configuration files

Login to Members section, and then navigate to TOOLS > OpenVPN certificates.



If you wish, you can create and download new certificates for Android/Kindle tablet or you can use existing OpenVPN certificates/OVPN configs just fine. Once downloaded, you can extract the zip file into your Android/Kindle tablet storage anywhere, e.g. into "sdcard/Astrill"

Note : You can only generate and use the standard Openvpn profiles. You cannot use "Split Routing for China" profiles due to size limitation imposed by Openvpn Connect app. Split Routing profiles are meant to be used on computers only.

   Android 2.x (Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread) and 3.x (Honeycomb):
   Android 4.x (Ice Cream Sandwich/ICS, Jelly Bean):
