When trying to connect to OpenVPN either via OpenVPN GUI / TunnelBlick / Linux
If you see the following errors in the "Status/Log" entries
Thu Jan 06 22:44:58 2011 Cannot load certificate file username.crt:
Thu Jan 06 22:44:58 2011 Cannot load private key file username.key
This means that the username.ovpn file cannot find the path to your username.crt or username.key file.
The follow files should exist (extracted from the username.zip file sent upon first payment)
In order to resolve this please make sure that all key files from the zip file and the .ovpn files are in the same directory.
