OpenVPN connection problem

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): Every time
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product):
HARDWARE (XA2, Xperia 10…): XperiaX
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): ?

DESCRIPTION: esthablishing openVPN connection from Sailfish is not working. Establishing the connection with SecureFishNet is flawless. I use the same opvn file.



  1. establish new openvpn connection via Sailfish
  2. import openvpn file
  3. accept settings

EXPECTED RESULT: vpn established

ACTUAL RESULT: problem with connection


(Please ALWAYS attach relevant data such as logs, screenshots, etc…): taking the same staps with SecureFishNet is functional

Is you connection password protected? You might have to set up a new profile with the old config file. Without a password my OpenVPN setups work flawless.

Yes, it’s password protected. But: the same ovpn file import in SecureFishNet works perfect. Same credentials of course.

Did you try to set up the connection as new?

Yes, I imported the ovpnfile in a new vpn connection

If it still does not work I cannot help any further. I am sorry.

You could try to remove the passphrase from the key as outlined here.

This didn’t work. And now even Securefish isn’t working anymore. :frowning_face:
It seems I’m without vpn for now.
Giving it up. Hope implementation is better in next update.
FYI: Openvpn config file that I use works flawless in Linux networkmanager.
