Basically, all you have to do is edit the config file and save it. Sounds easy, right?
But on Windows, there's a bit of an issue because you need to be an administrator to edit stuff that is deemed high risk, and fair enough, I guess, as your network config is high risk. No worries, all you need to learn is the "run as Administrator" thing. This of course assumes that you are an administrator on the box (and if you've been able to run the client previously, you are.)
So, do this:
1) Go to Windows Start menu (sorry Windows 8 folks, I dunno what the equiv is before v8.1) and type "notepad" in as below:
2) Right click on it and select the Run as Administrator
Yay. Actually, that's the hard part. Now, basically, it's just an issue with using notepad to open the vpn.conf file (which is typically here:
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptostorm Client\bin\user
Once you open it, edit it, probably all you will want to change is the exitnode (i.e. "remote") line, here:
Be sure to save the file. If you have issues saving the file, try disconnecting from the VPN.
Restart the VPN, and you should be using your prefered exitnode.
