  4. Open terminal as a ROOT and change to directory which contain previously unzipped files.
  5. Then start your openVPN connection in terminal using for example this command (czech server): openvpn --config czech_republic.ovpn
  6. Enter your ShazamVPN Account details - your User name and Password.
