Let the connection process do its work, when it has finished the log windows will automatically close and the OpenVPN GUI icon in the Task Bar will turn green. If there is something wrong, it will turn yellow: In such cases, look at the log window to see error messages that can tell you what went wrong (authentication failure, bad password, or no internet connectivity).
If you repeatedly have difficulties to reach our servers, go to the Servers page first to check for the server status: If maintenance or overload is shown, don't retry and select another server. If connection issues persist, please send a notification at firstname.lastname@example.org by telling which servers are affected.
