Connecting to IVPN on Amazon Fire TV

    The IVPN App is not currently compatible with the Amazon implementation of Android. If you would like to use IVPN on your Amazon Fire TV Stick, follow the instructions below to setup a connection using the OpenVPN for Android app.

    Install the OpenVPN for Android app

    1. On your Fire device, navigate to Settings -> Developers Options and enable Apps from Unknown Sources and ADB Debugging.
    2. Install ES File Explorer app on the Fire device.
    3. Open ES File Explorer and download the latest version of OpenVPN for Android from here

    Transfer the OpenVPN configuration files

    1. Install an FTP client on your computer system.
    2. Download the IVPN configuration files on your computer system and extract the .ovpn files from the .zip file into a sub-folder.
    3. Open ES File Explorer on the Fire device and navigate to Network -> Remote Manager on the sidebar.
    4. Enable Remote Manager and make sure it gives an IP address for the FTP server.
    5. Enter the FTP server IP address from Remote Manager into the FTP client on the computer system. It may work best if the Fire device and the computer system are on the same network.
    6. Upload the sub-folder with the .ovpn files from your computer system to the Downloads folder on the Fire device via the FTP client.
    7. Disable the Remote Manager in the Fire device after the transfer is complete.
    8. In the ES File Explorer, navigate to Local -> Download. The OpenVPN configuration files should be inside the sub-folder.

    Import the configuration

    1. Launch the OpenVPN for Android app.
    2. Follow our OpenVPN for Android Setup Guide starting on step #3.
    3. For the import in step #4, select the ES File Explorer as the navigator and go to the Download folder.
