I have a pfSense Firewall with OpenVPN server installed. I have all type of clients (Windows, Linux, IOS, Android) and all of them except Android are connecting and route the traffic via vpn. I can't even ping from the device the openvpn gateway or the opposite from android devices. From Windows or IOS device, i can ping all the internal routes and the gateway. So i figure that android does not route traffic through the vpn gateway as default. I have tried to redirect the gateway with "redirect-gateway def1" but it didn't work.

Windows OpenVPNClient: 2.4.7
IOS OpenVPN Client: 3.0.2.(894)
Android OpenVPN Client: 3.0.5.(1816)

PC: Windows 7 & Windows 10
IOS: Iphone 7, Iphone 8
Android: Samsung S7 Edge, Samsung S10, Galaxy Tab A (SM-T510)

auth SHA256
resolv-retry infinite
remote 77.XX.XX.216 1194 udp

OpenVPN Inc does not want to receive any feedback for the "Connect"
OpenVPN clients via the community bug trackers (here and in GH issues).

Please resubmit - if still relevant - via

(Generally speaking, I would recommend to use "OpenVPN for Android" (ics-openvpn), and not "OpenVPN Connect")
