OpenVPN Setup issue /iOS

I have dynamic DNS setup properly and working.

 

I tick enable VPN Service and Apply.

 

Then download the smart_phone.zip file which contains smart_phone.ovpn .. and import that into the OpenVPN client on my iPhone.

 

All seems fine.

 

But it will not connect .. and I can see no VPN traffic or errors being logged on the Orbi.

 

Have I missed a step ?

 

Eventually I timeout on the iPhone.

Re: OpenVPN Setup issue /iOS

Hi cpmolloy,

 

Not cirtain about iOS, but when I downloaded the client.zip file for a Windows installation, I too imported the client.ovpn file into OpenVPN and when I tried to connect, I just got a blank window which eventually timed-out.

 

But there were additional files in the client.zip file, specifically two security certificates and a .key file, which I originally didn't do anything with.

 

When I added these into my 'OpenVPN \ config' directory, then the VPN connection made progress. You may have to do something similar in iOS?

 

Hope this helps,

 

Regards,

 

Max

Re: OpenVPN Setup issue /iOS

Thanks Max,

 

I'll give this a shot.

 

However, when you click on the "FOR SMART PHONE"  download button, you get a zip file which just contains a single file .. the .ovpn file.

 

The Windows link does give those additional files you mention, though.

 

I shall have fool around and see if I can get some combination to work Smiley Happy

 

Thanks again !

 

Pat
