Setup

Download EZ Connect

EZ ConnectTM is supplied i two different packages:
  1. EZ ConnectTM Suite (Windows 10 or above).
EZ ConnectTM Suite embeds OpenVPN 2.4.9, and does not require you to install any additional software to work.Most clients download this version if they are unsure of what version of EZ ConnectTM client is needed (Suite or Client).
  1. EZ ConnectTM Client (Windows 10 or above).

This version is developed for advanced users. If you already have an OpenVPN GUI installed, you can install this "client only" version.
EZ ConnectTM Client does not contain any OpenVPN dependency; it needs an OpenVPN service to work correctly.
