There are a lot of free VPN service tools available for windows i.e. CyberGhost VPN, HotSpot Shield etc. But what if you want to connect to your custom VPN service provider?? What if we want to connect to our own created VPN server??
Well in such situations, those free VPN installers are of no use to you.You need some other solution.
OpenVPN is an OpenSource server client tool for VPN solutions.

I am using VPN profile of vpnbook.com so i would recommend you all to use it too for following this tutorial. Afterwards you may try VPN profiles from other free VPN providers too.
4- After downloading extract this bundle on your hard drive. Inside this bundle, you will see 4 VPN profiles i.e. UDP53, UDP 25000, TCP 80, TCP 443.
