Help please - 'Always-on VPN' option not selectable on my set top box

Post by Brighty » Sun Jan 10, 2021 6:23 am

Hi guys,

I have used OpenVPN Connect many times on Android phones and on a Firestick, but am stumped as to how to use it on my Android set top box.

My Z-Stream Android box uses an Ethernet connection to the Internet, and OpenVPN Connect is installed and a working profile imported, it connects and shows data being transferred, but then when I go back to the box's home screen to open another app, OpenVPN closes and cuts the VPN.
The box's advance settings>network>vpn shows OpenVPN Connect. The dots at the OpenVPN screen top right show the option 'Always-on VPN' but if I select it, a box appears with a single radio button with 'none' checked (saying that I don't have a VPN profile which I can select to remain always connected). I dont know if this is because the VPN is not running at the time (as it closes when I navigate away from the open app itself)?

So I don't know where to go from there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks kindly.
