Hi @hirshad If you’ve already set it up, then you simply launch openvpn on the client like this:

sudo openvpn --config path-to-client-config-file.ovpn

Have look at the Linux client setup in this tutorial for more information: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-16-04#step-12-install-the-client-configuration
