Download SoftEther VPN Client Manager for your OS (Windows or MacOS) and install it.
Client work with “SSL-VPN” protocol (not L2TP), which is impossible to distuinguish from usual HTTPS-traffic (for example, for China).
In the top menu select “Connect” – “New VPN Connection Settings”.
Enter the following settings:
- “Setting Name” – service name as you see fit;
- “Host Name” – IP-address that you received in the e-mail;
- “User Name”, “Password” – Username and Password that you set at the initial configuring of the server.
Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the Client Area credentials.
Right-click on the Virtual Network Adapter in the bottom part of the window and select “Reinstall Driver”.
Do not skip this step, otherwise DNS queries can go wrong!
Right-click on the VPN-connection in the top part of the window and select “Connect”.
