What is the OpenVPN config URL?

V2.4 and higher do not use the URL in the config.

The URL can be determined by extracting the non-hidden variables from the HTML output of the site. If there is no URL as is the case with the mobile versions the URL can be read from the HTML Headline.

The URL can be used to determine where to look for the config. An example is the URL (source): I can't login. Theres a problem with the Key server. Try to log in using an https:// instead of an http:// URL. If that doesn't work either contact the administrator about this issue.

The OpenVPN config output is not secure! The OpenVPN config is not encrypted and any attacker able to sniff the network traffic can obtain the password and connect to the protected network. The username is usually the name of the user, eg "meteola". You should either change the username to something more meaningful, or make sure the OpenVPN config is only displayed after a successful login. See also the security section.
