#1036 assigned Bug / Defect

iPhone drops Wi-Fi connection when VPN connection made

Reported by: ians555 Owned by: OpenVPN Inc.
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: OpenVPN Connect Version: OpenVPN Connect for iOS v1.2.9
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


The VPN connection drops a Wi-fi connection on iPhone iOS 11 and uses cellular data instead. When you close the VPN connection the phone reconnects to the Wi-Fi connection. Is this Apple or this App that’s causing this??

I'm seeing the same behaviour. Possibly causes #1104

It seems that disabling "Reconnect On Wakeup" fixes this and #1104. WiFi? stays associated and WiFi? Calling stays connected (if enabled in iOS Settings->Phone) when device goes to sleep. OpenVPN disconnects, but I guess that's expected for battery saving reasons.
