    You have to install the downloaded .ovpn file into the config folder of OpenVPN. For example, C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config

    Right-click the OpenVPN GUI icon on the desktop, and click Run as administrator to connect to VPN.

    Also, you can verify the network connectivity between Azure VM and your home router server is working or not. From VM, you can use the command telnet 8.8.8.8 1194 to verify this. (If you set Service-Type TCP; Service-Port 1194, OpenVPN public IP address is 8.8.8.8 in your OpenVPN server side). Change the Public IP and port in your side to telnet.

    In addition, you can refer to this link to check the setting on your home router server.
