Installing the OpenVPN client:
Usually, the easiest way to install the OpenVPN client is to use the package management system for your particular Linux distribution.
Run one of the following commands (as root):
yum install openvpn
apt-get install openvpn
Running the OpenVPN client with the downloaded client configuration file:
Once the OpenVPN client is installed on your linux system, you will need to start the program with your configuration file in order to make a connection.
The command line for running the program is "sudo openvpn --config client.ovpn"
(Where "client.ovpn" is the name of your downloaded config file.)
