OpenVPN on Android Profile Import Fails

Post by jethro » Mon Feb 03, 2020 1:49 pm


I've been searching the forum and googling for quite some time, but I am unable to find a page or someone who has posted this error.

I have already generated a client certificate (.ovpn file) and I have sent the file to my Android phone (Google Pixel 3XL). When I try to import profile in the OpenVPN app, after selecting the .ovpn file, I am getting an error "Failed to import profile - Failed to parse profile: option_error: option <html> was not properly closed out".

Hopefully, I can get some enlightenment or ideas from guys here on where it could've possibly gone wrong. I have tried generating a new certificate but gives the same error as well. Thanks in advance!
