This tutorial will show you how to setup openvpn on your VU+ with Surfshark and should be good for all images, I have tested this on ATV, OBH & PLi.

At first, you will need to get Surfhark service credentials. Those are the credentials, different from the ones that you use to log in to the Surfshark website or app. To find them, go to the login page here and sign in.
Code:
Please, Log in or Register to view codes content!
Once you log in, go to Devices -> Manual, scroll down to the bottom of the page. You will find your service credentials there.

Open the downloaded .ovpn configuration file with your preferred text editor. NotePad++ is free and the best option imo.

When setup is complete, reboot the device.


Connect to your device through the FTP or SSH, and create a new folder named openvpn in /etc/ path. After that, upload the client.conf and login.txt files to /etc/openvpn folder.


Start the OpenVPN on the Menu >Setup >System >Network >OpenVPN Setup >Press Green To Start OpenVPN.
