If you prefix with the `sudo` command it will allow you to put the files 
in `/etc/openvpn` directory. It should look something like this:

sudo mv ~/Downloads/anonymizer_universal_openvpn.tar /etc/openvpn
cd /etc/openvpn
sudo tar -xvf /etc/openvpn/anonymizer_universal_openvpn.tar

The `/etc` directory is where all the configuration files are stored for 
the different services/applications running on your computer.
