iOS: OpenVPN Connect will hang with connected status after failed handshake — at Initial Version

Reported by: hunterx1 Owned by: Antonio Quartulli
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Crypto Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


When attempting to connect to my PIA VPN provider with GCM as the ovpn configured cipher, OpenVPN will show connected status, but will actually be hung without a connection at all. Going into sleep mode will NOT result in a reconnect attempt. The log will be frozen at the initial connection attempt. The connection slider was in the ON position, and the VPN status bar indicator was present.

PIA has confirmed that AES-128-GCM, and AES-256-GCM (or any GCM) is not supported at this time. All the supported CBC ciphers work as expected with CpenVPN.

I have tested the same GCM ovpn file with another OpenVPN client, and that resulted with a failed handshake. The client correctly failed and terminated the connection.

logs look normal, and no crash reports exist.
