Last Updated 8 months ago

Step 1: Download the software and certificates:

The client for the installation of Tunnelblick can be found at:, or register at

There, select the following options: "Teaching material", "Statistics software" and then go to the option "VPN Software MAC".

Also, select the option "Download new certificate" which will be needed later to set up the connection.

Step 2: Install and set up the software:

Once you have downloaded the client, execute the following file in the "Downloads" folder by double-clicking on it.

Then, start the installation by double-clicking on the Tunnelblick icon.

In the following window we confirm the installation by clicking on Open.

If you are asked for your user name and password, enter them here and finish the installation.

Step 3: Insert certificates and start the software:

The certificates can be unpacked by a double click on the folder "Downloads". Then you will get a new folder.

In this folder you will find the file "pfh.ovpn", choose whether you want to have the configuration for "All users" or "Only for this user". In our example we selected "Only for this user".

Once you have successfully installed Tunnelblick, start the software. Then, go to the system settings under the tab "Security" and choose the option "General". There you should select "Allow" and confirm the software.

If this is done, you can establish the connection to the PFH in the "top right" bar.

When everything is properly installed and set up, the connection should turn green and you are connected to the PFH. If you want to disconnect the connection again, go to the symbol and select "Disconnect all".
