OpenVPN Connect 1.1.17 (build 76) Android/IOS Error Reading profile : file is binary

Post by V Lam » Mon Dec 26, 2016 6:05 pm

Hi,

I'm quite new using openVPN. I installed my openVPN server on my ubuntu 16.04 according to this remarkable site URL : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/ ... untu-16-04. And it seems to work fine. From this tutorial I generated a .ovpn file, this file works fine on my macbook pro laptop and also on my IPADs using respectively Tunnelblick and OpenVPN Connect, but the same file do not neither work on an up to date Iphone or an Android phone (Marshmallow/Lenovo Zuk2), they both output the same message "Error Reading profile : file is binary" when importing the file and they both use OpenVPN Connect as well.

Any suggestion and help is appreciated.

Thanks

Does this happen also with the new Connect app (3.0.x)? Maybe there is some character in the file that fools OpenVPN.
