Connect with .ovpn file fails (import from Windows installation)

Post by Alrik » Tue Mar 12, 2019 8:21 am

Hello OVPN-users,

I'm new to OpenVPN. I'm using the OpenVPN Windows client (on a Windows 10 PC), which works fine. Now I wanted to import my the configuration file (*.ovpn) from my Windows-installation to my OpenVPN app running on my Android 8 smartphone.

Thus, I copied the ovpn-file from my PC to my smartphone. When trying to import it, I get the following error:

"Failed to import profile - Selected file has incorrect profile configuration[inline], [inline]"

How do I have to change my Windows .ovpn (with integrated CA-certificate, as it seems) to get it working in my Android app? The configuration files in Linux and Windows seem to be identical.

What are the necessary changes for Android?

Thanks for any help!
