OpenVPN iphone mobileconfig no connection

Post by Miro » Sun Jul 05, 2020 2:05 pm

Hi,
i need some help with a mobileconfig file for ios devices. The instructions and templates from several webpages don´t work for me.
The OpenVPN Connetion App works properly, but i need the ondemand functionality of the mobileconfig file.

The server is a Pi 4 4GB with a fresh Raspberry Pi OS with desktop (May 2020) and is uptodate.
The log from the OpenVPN server shows no errors or connection attempts, so the iphone (X)
doesn't even reach the server.

Maybe some one can provide me a working mobileconfig file as a template, of course without personal data.

greeting
Miro

Hi Miro,
i had a working mobileconfig since iOS App 3.2.0 - which version do you use?

Do you have a specific domain that should trigger the vpn-connection?

As far as i understood VoD needs some kind of trigger - in my case it is my local domain.

Code: Select all

<dict>
<key>Action</key>
<string>EvaluateConnection</string>
<key>ActionParameters</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>Domains</key>
<array>
<string>mydomain.local</string>
<string>*.mydomain.local</string>
</array>
<key>DomainAction</key>
<string>ConnectIfNeeded</string>
</dict>
</array>
</dict>
What triggers your VoD ?
Leaving home-WiFi ?

The SSID‘s of the WiFi’s should trigger the VoD.

Known WiFi = no vpn
Unknown WiFi = vpn
