macOS cannot connect to OpenVPN using Shimo

After contacting their support they responded with the following which solved the problem.

When this happens open the System Preferences and go to the Security & Privacy settings panel. On the General tab, at the bottom right corner, there should be a message, saying that the use of system software was blocked with an Allow button next to it. After clicking on allow, there should be a dialogue to allow the use of software signed by Fabian Jaeger. If you don’t see such a message do this alternatively:

  1. Go to this page: and download the tun/tap kernel extensions
  2. Install the package, you have to quit Shimo and other VPN clients you might be using before doing so
  3. Go to this folder: /Library/Extensions
  4. There locate the tun.kext and tap.kext file and copy them
  5. Go to your Applications folder, find Shimo, right-click on it and select Show content package
  6. Go to the folder Contents/Ressources/tuntap
  7. Paste the previously copied files inside the tuntap folder and override the existing ones there
  8. Reboot your Mac and try to connect again with Shimo
