Hi friends,

1) There are 2 IOS devices. I've got mullvad up and running smoothly on one of them but while importing the OVPN file to OpenVPN on the 2d device, it keeps showing a :

"failed to import OVPN profile from Selected file.Profile import failed: line too long" message.

I've tested, with no avail, downloading different versions & regions & trying to open the files.

2) Also is the case that the can not be unzipped and opened in OpenVPN?

The device (posing the challenges) is running IOS 12.1.2

Could someone help me resolve this issue?

you can send by email just the .ovpn file, or install apache service and host the file in a local server... open the safari with server`s address ... worked for me.

I had the same problem, it was solved by using Safari (instead of Firefox) to download the config file, then opened it in OpenVPN from within Safari

Download VPN configuration file
1. Open your mobile browser to download your VPN configuration file (authentication required). ...
2. Once the file is downloaded, select Open in OpenVPN.
3. The OpenVPN will ask you to accept the profile available for import, click Accept.
4. A prompt will appear asking for your Username and Password.
