Why doesn't my IP address change with vpn connected via OpenVPN?If your real IP address is displayed on web sites when VPN is connected, that means OpenVPN GUI software doesn't have enough rights in the system. You need to close OpenVPN GUI in system tray to fix that. Then choose one of the following actions and perform it:
1. Click on the OpenVPN GUI shortcut with right mouse button and choose "Settings". A window with shortcut settings will open, then open tab "Compatibility" and check the checkbox on "Run this application with administrator rights".
2. Run OpenVPN GUI not by double clicking on the shortcut, but click once on it with right mouse button and choose "Run as administrator".
