Failed to Parse .OVPN File, TAP Mode Not Supported

Post by phikev » Sun Nov 29, 2020 7:33 pm

Hello,

I just installed OpenVPN Client version 3.2.2 (1455) and am trying to import a .OVPN file created by my routers VPN setup instructions (NETGEAR R6400). When I attempt to import the file I get the following error, "Failed to import file Failed to parse profile: option_error, proto_option_error. TAP mode is not supported." I read another post that sounded similar, the fix on that was that the version of OpenVPN was not the most current. I double checked that I have the most up to date from the website. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I'm guessing based on TinCanTech's eyeroll that I'm missing something obvious...mind letting me know what that is?

The error message says "TAP mode is not supported" ...

Android, iPhone...?

If Windows, download:
