I installed Tunnelblick and want to add my VPN configuration(s) to it.
Normally it’s pretty simple: files are provided by provider and all you have to do is double click on the OpenVPN file(s) (files have ovpn extension). That’s it … in theory
Unfortunately my MAC OS (Yosemite) shown warning that file was downloaded from internet. Naturally I choose that’s all OK and I want open that file … but Tunnelblick saw nothing afterwards.
Why it’s so
MAC OS X gets the file into the quarantine. Some programs, like Tunnelblick, has problems with it, even if you allowed to open it.
You can remove warning from downloaded files.
I suppose you have been downloaded file(s) into Downloads folder in your home directory.
So, start terminal. In the terminal you can use an alias pointing to your home directory (character ~ is such alias), so the command is :
xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine ~/Downloads
This command will remove quarantine flag in whole Downloads directory and its subdirectories (option -r makes that).
If you don’t want to see warning anymore, disable it for good:
defaults write com.apple.LaunchServices LSQuarantine -bool NO
You can enable it anytime with the command above, just change NO to YES
Happy VPN tunneling!
