Configuring OpenVPN using a profile

Postby aviuziel » Thu Jan 12, 2017 3:32 pm

Hi All,

I'm trying to configure OpenVPN on iOS 10 using iOS profile.
My OpenVPN server version is 2.1.4b.
I'm using Apple Configurator 2.

The only doc I found is this FAQ
under "Q: Can I import an OpenVPN profile via an iOS .mobileconfig file?". This was tested on version 3.5 of the iPhone Configuration utility and iOS 7.0.4 (which is quite old).

As first step I would like to build a profile to configure the VPN to authenticate using password. Next I would like to build a profile which configure OpenVPN to connect on-demand using certificate

I will push this profile using Apple Configurator and later using MDM service.

Where can I find a sample .mobileconfig profile I can use?
Where can I find an updated doc for building the iOS profile?

Did you ever find a good solution for this? I also need to push out an OpenVPN profile to via an MDM service.

It seems like the guys in this thread (viewtopic.php?f=36&t=19944&p=67864#p67864) thread got it working since they're specifically working on getting the Per-App VPN working in a profile.
