/home/raymond/Downloads/anonymizer_universal_openvpn (2)/lib/au/client.key
/home/raymond/Downloads/anonymizer_universal_openvpn (2)/lib/au/client.crt
/home/raymond/Downloads/anonymizer_universal_openvpn (3)/lib/au/client.key
/home/raymond/Downloads/anonymizer_universal_openvpn (3)/lib/au/client.crt
raymond at raymond-HP-Pavilion-TS-15-Notebook-PC:~$
