How to create OpenVPN connection on Mac?

1 Download and install TunnelBlick

The Tunnelblick application contains the Tunnelblick GUI, OpenVPN, and OpenSSL, so no other installations are needed.
First, download the latest disk image from the tunnelblick.net page. Double-click the downloaded .dmg file. An icon for a "Tunnelblick" disk will appear on the Desktop, and a window similar to the following will appear:

If you are reinstalling, upgrading, or downgrading Tunnelblick, the window will show the version number of the current copy and of the new copy. The current copy of Tunnelblick will be put in the Trash before it is replaced.
The name and password of a computer administrator is needed to install Tunnelblick. Tunnelblick's imbedded OpenVPN needs root privileges because it needs to modify network settings by configuring new network devices, changing routes, and adding and removing nameservers. Because we don't want you to enter your administrator account name and password every time you start a VPN connection, Tunnelblick comes with a setuid root binary that allows it to start a VPN connection with super user rights. Tunnelblick uses your administrator account name and password so it can create this setuid root binary. Tunnelblick also secures itself from being modified.
Click the "Install" button to copy Tunnelblick to your hard drive at the indicated location.
Once that is done (it may take a couple of seconds), a new window will appear, similar to the following:

If Tunnelblick is currently running, a window similar to the following will appear:

(Note: Connections marked "automatically start when computer starts" will not be closed.)
Click the "Close VPN Connections and Stop Tunnelblick" to continue. After all connections are closed and Tunnelblick has quit, the new version of Tunnelblick will be launched. Continue with the following sections.

If this is the first time you have run Tunnelblick as a particular user, or the first time after certain Tunnelblick upgrades, the following window will appear:

Specify whether or not you wish to have Tunnelblick check for updates each time it is launched. Each time an update is available, you will be given a choice of whether to install the update or not.
When there are no configurations (which is usually the case the first time Tunnelblick is run by each user when using a non-deployed version of Tunnelblick with no Shared configurations), the configuration helper will appear:
