#1109 assigned Bug / Defect

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.

VPN stands Virtual private network. it basically used for building the computer network. Many types of devices are using in the computer network such as Router, switches LAN Cable etc. you can simply create the profile in the IOS. you can also use the Asus laptop in the computer network.
