To me need also posibility to join android clients!
But, for connections from android need are client.ovpn file! What exactly client.ovpn must contain? And second question how to make the client.ovpn from what I have!
My server.conf

dh /etc/openvpn/keys/dh1024.pem
ca /etc/openvpn/keys/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/keys/server.crt
key /etc/openvpn/keys/server.key

It's easier to make the ovpn file on the server.

I haven't tried Android, but I did do iOS, and it's easier to embed the certificates rather than have separate files.

In other words, replace:

Code: Select all

ca ca.crt
with

Code: Select all

<ca>
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIF...
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
</ca>
with corresponding changes elsewhere.
