Digi Cellular Router with Static IP to OpenVPN in Mac/iPad

Post by wallabyfeisty » Mon May 10, 2021 5:33 pm

Hi Guys,

In our decentralized water treatment system, we have a cellular router(Digi) with an iPad for controls.

-While trying to set up the router as an OpenVPN Server, a .ovpn file is generated with just 1 certificate inside the .ovpn file. The .ovpn file looks something like this :

#general
client
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
remote-cert-tls server
cipher AES-256-CBC
verb 3

# connection settings
dev tun
proto udp
remote (IP Address) 1194
client-cert-not-required
<ca>
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
(Certificate Details..)
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
</ca>

-After importing this file to the OpenVPN app in Mac/iPad, it does not connect or gives the error "NO EXTERNAL CERTIFICATE" if the line "client-cert-not-required" is removed.

I would really appreciate it if you guys could help out as we have been stuck on this problem for a while now. Thanks!
