OpenVPN GUI vs OpenVPN Connect

Hello everyone!

I hope you can help me, I'm going crazy.

Let me tell you...

I have configured a Mikrotik to lift OVPN tunnels with remote workers.

If I install OpenVPN GUI on the remote workers' machines and import the necessary files (ca.crt, client.crt, client.key and secret) everything works fine. However, if I do the same with OpenVPN Connect, I get to lift the tunnel but I don't ping the computers on the other side.

By doing many tests, I see that in the first case the static route configured through the .ovpn file (route 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 172.23.1.1) is loaded on the remote computers, but in the second case this does not happen.

What is the difference between the two products?

How can I solve this problem?

I need to get OpenVPN Connect working because I am going to use it on Android mobile devices and from what I see there is no such option with OpenVPN GUI

Thanks and regards

you can try push that route from server on openvpn connect to see if it work or not . in my android i can push any route i like just try it one to see. add this line into your server conf and restart your server after that try connect it.copy the whole line into server config,

push "route 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 172.23.1.1"
