I tried "auth SHA256" and the iOS client can connect, but full tunnel traffic is not usable

what you mean client can connect? Would you mind to share you server and client config?

I am not talking about tls-crypt. i just means when I use auth SHA256 (instead of my previous config that use auth SHA1), on my iPhone the traffic is extremely slow
on my mac it is working great

FYi - I use SHA512 and with relatively old iphone 5s it works flawlessly with full speed

I see. Thanks for letting me know.

I have no idea why. the same settings (same ovpn file) for SHA256 as auth does not have problem with my Mac

I have managed to setup tls-crypt on my desktop clients, but no luck with iOS.

This is particularly troublesome since I live in a country that has recently become heavy handed in blocking VPN connections. Tunneling OpenVPN over something else is not particularly easy on a non-jailbroken iOS device — so tls-crypt would be really useful for me when mobile, and seems to be working as expected in Linux and macOS.

yes this is unfortunate but Open VPN 2.4 (where tls-crypt has been introduced) is not supported by official Open VPN iOS client yet. I too wish it was.

Try non EC setup with some common port 443 or 21 - depending on your country infrastructure it might work.

Yeah, I've been through all of that. DPI is being implemented and connections are sporadically getting dropped during the key exchange regardless of port number or whether TCP/UDP is being used. tls-crypt seems to be getting around this for the time being.

At home I tunnel OpenVPN over different things, but like I said, that's not so easy with vanilla iOS. So if I'm not at home and want to use something like Skype, there's often not much I can do.

What version of OpenVPN is OpenVPN Connect currently based on?

That's interesting. So it's more a matter of when OpenVPN 3.0 supports tls-crypt — I guess.

Looks like many commercial vpn providers cracked it already as many mention ecc openvpn

So annoying a bit that there is no free version yet. I wonder if maybe one of this commercial clients accepts any ovpn files. I will look around

I would not object to paying for a well-maintained iOS OpenVPN client that's feature compatible with the latest stable OpenVPN release if such a thing exists. An added bonus would be the ability to actually edit ovpn files without having to import them from scratch . . . .
