Your FoxyProxy accounts come with both proxy and VPN service.

These instructions explain how to connect to your VPN accounts using a method called OpenVPN. It is more complicated than IPSec VPN and PPTP VPN. IPSec VPN is the preferred way to use your VPN account. Only use these instructions if IPSec does not work for you.
