How do setup OpenVpn via MDM

Post by chrisnasah » Sun Mar 08, 2020 4:52 pm

Hello,

I am using OpenVpn server installed in the untangle firewall and looking to have the configuration pushed via MDM.

Has anyone managed to push OpenVPN settings via a MDM server?

Thanks

Thanks for the link I will surely go through it, do you mind confirming which MDM you used and whether it had a pre-set option to select OpenVPN as way to push the configuration?

The mdm I am working on has option to select OpenVPN as a way to push VPN, I have also raised a case with them to explain how it all works.

Thanks

MobileIron Core. It does have an "OpenVPN" VPN payload type, but I choose to use the "Custom SSL" type for flexibility.

If you are attempting to configure for iOS, I strongly suggest getting a test device working first with a Configurator-created profile, then transferring the settings to the MDM GUI.
