#1109 closed Bug / Defect (wontfix)

OpenVPN import OVPN profile on iOS

Reported by: koodinurk Owned by: OpenVPN Inc.
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OpenVPN Connect Version:
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: iOS, import, ovpn profile


If I try to import profile from my routers web ui, app throws this error:

Failed to import profile
Failed to import OVPN profile from selected file.option_error: remote option not specified

but if I save it to disk, and import it via shared folders in iTunes, everything started to work again.


remote my_obscure_ip 1194
proto tcp-client
dev tun
sndbuf 0
rcvbuf 0
keepalive 15 60
comp-lzo adaptive
auth SHA512
cipher AES-256-CBC
ns-cert-type server







-----BEGIN OpenVPN Static key V1-----
-----END OpenVPN Static key V1-----


Older version app worked just fine, after updating my previous profile did not work anymore. Got this error, Connection Timeout: NETWORK_EOF_ERROR every time and no connection was made. Thought to import profile again, but got this error instead when importing from routers web interface.

iOS: 10.3.3, iPhone 6
Asus GT-AC5300
