Generic Device - OpenVPN

Here you can find setup information for your chosen VPN and also how to fix any problems you might encounter.

You can use the Table of Contents on the right hand side of this window to navigate between the different sections.

You must have a Residential VPN account to use this service.

Install Guide

Step 1
Retrieve your VPN username and password, if you are a new member this is contained in the StreamVia Residential VPN - Account Information email you received after ordering.

Step 2
Using a computer, download the Shared or Dedicated Residential VPN connection profiles depending on the service you have purchased.

Step 3
Import the OpenVPN configuration file to your device - please note, our Residential VPN uses settings that are only present on OpenVPN 2.4 (tls-crypt). So if you're using a router, it MUST include OpenVPN 2.4 (not 2.3, or earlier). You may need to upgrade your router firmware if it uses an earlier version of OpenVPN.

Which options should I use?!
'Option 1' labelled options will typically provide the best performance, 'Option 2' may be required from some restricted/censored locations. We recommend you experiment, to see which works best for you.

Contact our Support team with details of the device you're using, if you're not sure.
