[iOS 11.1] "ovpn" file type no longer associated with OpenVPN Connect

Post by fkooman » Thu Nov 02, 2017 8:54 am

Since the upgrade to iOS 11.1 it is no longer possible to import ".ovpn" files in OpenVPN Connect for iOS.

When downloading a ".ovpn" file it does not offer the option to open with OpenVPN Connect any longer. This worked in iOS 11.0.

Is there a workaround for this or does it require an update to OpenVPN Connect for iOS?

It seems this was related to another app that was installed on iOS.

Yes, as far as I can tell it works fine again. No idea of other people also had issues with this? Sorry for the confusion!
