Not connecting on windows but works on android

Post by michael234237 » Fri Aug 19, 2022 5:37 pm

using exactly the same settings I can connect using android but not using windows 11. I receive error message saying "error calling protect() method on socket" 30 times

All the settings and inputs are identical. I cant for the life of me work out what's wrong.

OpenVPNConnect on both android and windows - latest versions
Using the server that comes with my asus router - latest firmware

Please can someone help
much appreciated

Are you using the latest version of OpenVPN connect?
If not, please try to uninstall the existing app, then download the latest version here >>
