Doesn't request "Data" permission
Posted: Mon Jul 01, 2019 2:56 pm
I'm using an iPad Pro with Cellular option. I'm having a OVPN file which runs fine on my MacBook Air and my iPhone 5SE. When I install OpenVPN Connect on the iPad I can import the OVPN file but when connecting it immediatly shows the error message: "Network is unavailable. Please try to connect later with active network". I tried it with deactivated cellular and/or deactivated WLAN. Both give me the same error messages. Based on my network logging there is no connection attempt at all leaving the iPad. When I look in the setting menu I also can't find the "OpenVPN" App Menu Entry which should allow me to activate and deactivate the iOS permissions (e.g. data access). My current working theorie would be, that there is a bug in the OpenVPN Connect which did not request this actual permission. As a matter of fact I can see the "OpenVPN" App Menu Entry on my iPhone and when I deactivate the Data access I receive the identical error message. Is it possible to force the app to register itself in iOS to require data access?
