Hi, I am having trouble connecting to my institutions VPN using OpenVPN on my iPad Pro running iOS 11. All seems to work fine: I imported the .ovpn profile into OpenVPN, entered my credentials and clicked "connect". It all seems to work fine and a small "VPN" icon appears in the status bar. However, Safari doesn't seem to be routed through the tunnel: I don't get access to the resources I should be able to access and, more to the point, the "bytes in" and "bytes out" counters in OpenVPN don't budge when I use Safari to browse the web. (Browsing does work fine though.) On the other hand, if I use the "WebSSH" ssh client, then I do see the local machines on my institution's network and OpenVPN does register traffic flowing through it.
I have very little experience with VPN's, so don't really know how to debug this further... Any ideas? FYI, the .ovpn profile I am using looks like this:
Code: Select all
setenv CLIENT_CERT 0
keepalive 10 60
Thanks a lot for any insight into this (for me) baffling matter!
