I visited the config generator page at AirVPN where you can create a config file by planet, country, server, and have got OpenVPN to use it. But what I can't figure out is how to select from one of multiple servers that were added to the configuration file. OpenVPN appears to just select the top most one, which in one configuration file I have that includes all the severs in a country, it picks the same one which is very slow. So how do I change which server I connect to, without making config files for each server and restarting OpenVPN? I am not using Windows.

Comment out the lines with the servers you don't wish to use.

Config file comments are preceded with '#' or ';' symbols.
