VPN iPhone connect to public Internet

Hi,

 

I have an R7000 with fw version V1.0.7.2_1.1.93. I'm using an iPhone (IOS 10.1.1) with OpenVPN (1.0.7) 

 

Settings on my R700 are:

VPN Service: on

TUN: UDP port 12973

TAP: UDP port 12974

Clients use VPN for all sites on home network AND Internet

 

The CRT, KEY and OVPN files are installed on my iPhone and connection is looking fine, I can connect to devices in my home network from my mobile network connection.

 

So far so good. 

 

Now the issue: 

 

When I'm in China, I need to use the VPN to connect to ALL internet sites. However checking this today (not in China) I see on the whatip.com website on my iPhone my IP address is simply the one from my mobile operator, not from my home network. 

 

That can't be correct.

 

What can I do to make this work? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Nietrijker,

 

1. Try to download and reinstall the files on your iPhone.

2. If you connect to WiFi in China, can you access the Internet through OpenVPN?
