    Hi and thank you for your reply, I have already read the user manual, but it does not talk about my problem, I followed all the steps, but the manual does not talk about the other three files, it is marked just add the openvpn.ovpn file , and so it doesn't work.

    Hi friend, it's simple, I add my openvpn account, with username and password, and I add the openvpn.ovpn file provided by my vpn subscription, but it doesn't work

    Hi @Mehdi_13 friend,

    ok.

    Do you have logging turned on, and is there anything in the logs to say anything about openvpn trying to set-up and about its failing please?

    If logging is not enabled, could you enable it and try it again to see if any logs are available for you to share here?

    Kind regards,

    Tony

    Hi,
    The log is activated, but when I want to read it, it asks me for a password that I don't know, is there a default password ?

    Hi friend,
    You didn't understand me I think, when I download the Log of the Armor G5, it is compressed in .tar, I open it with 7zip, but it asks me for a password, I tried the password 1234 , but it does not work, there must be another special password to decompress the Log

    Hi my friend,

    I know understand, but I don't what the password for the log tar file is.

    @zyxel_jerry previously wrote the following to another user:

    "You can private message the log .tar file to us by following steps below,
    Click username which you want to sent the private message.
    Click "Message",  now, you can enter your message in the blank, and click "Post Message" to send it out"
