Can't connect with iPhone anymore

Post by ligistx » Sun Apr 28, 2019 8:26 pm

I am trying to figure out why I can't seem to connect any longer to my pi running ovpn server.

I used to have no issues, then had some issues which were solved by commenting out the compression options in the config IIRC, but now I can't seem to connect once again and I have no idea why. Pi is updated, iphone is updated. Has there been another config issue that I am just not seeing that needs to be edited to get thins working again? I rarely use this connection, but it sure is a pain when I expect it to work and it doesn't :/.

Any help would be fantastic!

Are you getting any error messages?

Nope, it just wont connect. If I don't put a timeout on in the apps settings, it will try for seemingly ever. With a 10 second timeout, I get the "There was an error attempting to connect to the selected server" and asks to cancel or retry.

Well, I still haven't got this to work... Still no answers!?!?! I can't see how this can be broken for this long and not be fixed, so it has to be a one off instance. But I have no idea what could be wrong.

i also can't connect with my iPhone.
I'm getting an connection Timeout Error.

The same profile works on the Windows App.

I cannot choose a certificate nor I can add one. I only have (beside the open file) an ca.cert - no key or P12 file.

Same problem here. I've tried creating a new client/re-uploaded my old client. I did upgrade to i0S but it had stopped working a couple of days before that. It used to work great. I can ssh into it without issue.
