    Are you trying to set up a VPN server on your Mac so you can connect to it when you're away from home? Or, do you want to protect the internet connection of your iMac using a VPN client such as Viscosity?

    Installing Viscosity is just like installing any other Mac program. What you need is an OpenVPN server to connect to, and the configuration files/certificates from that server so you can set up the connection in the Viscosity client. There are quite a few services offering VPN service for a fee. Private Internet Access is one I like, and VPNSecure is another. PIA is probably the better and more flexible, with almost 500 servers around the world to connect to. I have Viscosity on my MBP set up with PIA connections, and also use the OpenVPN client app on my iPhone for the same thing.

    As HenryAZ said, try a subscription to PIA (Private Internet Access). I've used them before and they're excellent. You can use their macOS and iOS VPN clients or you can use Viscosity on your Mac but you'll have to download the OpenVPN config files from the PIA website.

    I prefer Viscosity on a Mac, with the downloaded OpenVPN config files from PIA. I do not really care for the PIA app either on the Mac or iOS. On iOS, I use the free OpenVPN app, and just import the config files to it during an iTunes sync.
