• Enter the IP address of the VPN server you want to connect to in the “Server IPv4 Address” field. Please check this link on how to convert server address into IP address. https://support.purevpn.com/how-to-get-server-ip-or-convert-hostdomain-name-to-ip-address
• Enter your PureVPN username and password. (Make sure you use your VPN username purevpn0sxxx and password and NOT the website account credentials).
• MTU: Auto
Click Apply. You may have to wait while the settings are adjusted.

6 Choose Local Network option. Enter the Google DNS or other Open DNS addresses in Static DNS 1 and Static DNS 2 fields respectively.

7 Click Apply.
