Unable to connect through "SETTINGS", only through "OpenVPN Connect"

Postby balkis » Mon Jan 16, 2017 8:26 pm

Hey,

I have just noticed that I am unable to connect to my VPN server using native SETTINGS application on an iPhone:

It stays in "Connecting..." state for a while and then time-outs. If I use "OpenVPN Connect" application, I am able to connect without any problems.

"OpenVPN Connect" logs are below:

I'm having the same problem and posted it a few weeks ago. Still having the problem with the new update. Can't believe more people aren't running into this. Seems to me it is not passing the username/password when invoked through "Settings".

Very frustrating as it prevents iOS from automatically connecting most of the time. :-(

Im getting a similar Problem, if I try and connect via iOS settings Toggle, it'll hang. if i Check the connection log through the OPENVPN app i see that I'm getting a Transport Error/ Network_EOF_Error, came on here to see if anyone else was having a similar issue. I've test this on iPhone 7+ 10.3/ iPhone 6S+ 10.2.1 and there both having the same issue.

I saw this on the OpenVPN FAQ https://docs.openvpn.net/docs/openvpn-connect/openvpn-connect-ios-faq.html, and wondering if this has anything to do with the issue at hand? I am using credentials.

Q: Can OpenVPN profiles be connected from the Settings App?

A: Yes, starting with iOS 8. Note that only autologin profiles (i.e. profiles that don't require credential entry) can be launched using this mechanism.
