I also want to use my Windows Mobile phone to connect to an Open VPN server. Is it possible to make such an app?

:!: Also signed up to +1 this. :!:

Maybe if one if the dev's didn't mind we could start a fund for a 3rd party developer to make it for them... But we would need permission to do such a thing of course :(.

Cisco AnyConnect works perfectly on Windows Mobile 10, so I don't see a reason why OpenVPN shouldn't be possible to implement :(

OpenVPN is too much Linux oriented (TAP/TUN driver) and far away from any RFC standard, so it will be hard work to switch it to W10M VPN API. On Windows desktop there is some (badly written) tun/tap driver so it works (somehow). But they can't do this on W10 mobile, because it does not allow install kernel drivers easily (thanks god). Also OpenVPN guys are too Linux only oriented, so we can't hope they will read any Windows documentation only because of their belief. Their argument that WM platform has only 1% users is ridiculous when Linux client also exists.
I recommend to switch to any standardized ipsec solution (I use strongswan) which works very well on W10 mobile.

vlipert@seznam.cz: I guess you are right about the OpenVPN developers' belief :(

Unfortunately I can't change our work VPN endpoint to anything else.

And why is that so, if you do not mind.

gracet: That's pretty simple - I am an employee, not an IT administrator, so I have no access to VPN configuration :)
