Setting Up Ultra.cc VPN

All Ultra.cc plans have complimentary VPN service included, which allows you to surf the web securely and anonymously by tunneling your internet traffic through your slot. We're using OpenVPN, a mature and secure VPN protocol.

This guide shows you how to get OVPN config files to be used for your OpenVPN clients and setting up OpenVPN clients.

Setting Up Ultra.cc VPN

  • Login to your UCP and go to Access details

  • Download a config by clicking one of the 3 buttons. It'll download a zip file as {username}-{config number}.zip.

  • Opening the zip shows the following contents, as shown below. Extract them to a folder, to be used later.
