Důležité: Change of certificate

On March 8, 2022, the FIT VPN server certificate and its certification authority will be changed. Until then, you must update your OpenVPN client configuration – replace the CA certificates with new ones from fit-vpn-ca.pem (if you know how), or delete the current configuration and recreate it according to the installation manual below. You can connect with the new set of certificates after and even before March 8, but you won’t be able to connect with the old ones after that date – so don’t delay the change!

Video instructions for updating the OpenVPN configuration on Windows can be found here.

Note: The minimum supported version of OpenVPN is 2.4.0.
