So, when the list of servers is shown, it has a link to OpenVPN config file. How does it work? What is the URL structure? How does the url generated?

Hello, when you see a link to an OpenVPN config file while using SoftEther VPN, it means that you can download a configuration file that can be used with OpenVPN client software to connect to the VPN server.
The URL structure of the link to the OpenVPN config file depends on the specific implementation or setup of the SoftEther VPN server. Typically, the URL is generated dynamically based on the server's configuration and the parameters specified by the user. The exact process of how the URL is generated can vary depending on the SoftEther VPN server's implementation. However, in general, the server may use a combination of the server's address, port, username, password, and other parameters to generate a unique URL for each user. This URL points to a specific OpenVPN configuration file that contains the necessary settings for establishing a VPN connection.
