Note: By default, Tunnelblick is set to launch automatically when your computer starts up but it will not connect to our service. The steps below will set Tunnelblick to connect to our service automatically. However, If you've chosen Quit Tunnelblick option at anytime, Tunnelblick will not start automatically in the future unless you launch it again manually in the Applications folder.

Now you should able to see the Settings page. At this screen, select When Tunnelblick launches from the Connect drop down menu.

Once that is done, click on Advanced button and check on Keep connected option.

You can now click on the red X icon at the top left of the Settings page to quit.  Finally, Restart your computer and Tunnelblick will start automatically and connect to our service.
