Probably related to https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/wifis-disappeared-3-4-0-22/ ?

Just to clarify; did you lose the VPN connection you created, or the connection was there but it didn’t remember your credentials?

The vpn configuration itself got lost during the update, analog to all the wifi network configurations. Thankfully I had stored the openvpn configuration and certificate files on the device, so re-creating the vpn was easy.

It was the only vpn configuration I had, so I cannot comment if the issue depends on the type of vpn.

I also lost the configured OpenVPN-Connection, although my configured WIFIs were preserverd during the update.

Edit: Phone is a XA2 Plus Dual Sim

Very similar OpenVPN-Connection on a Gemini PDA was preserved during Update however. So it doesn’t seem to be dependent on the VPN Type (at least not only)

ACK on this bug from my side, too (Sony X).

Same Problem
But after Network reboot Settings - Utilities - Network reboot, all saved WiFis and VPN is back

I had problem with VPN and login, i had to type my credentials (user/password) all the time.
Thanks for the tip about “Network reboot Settings - Utilities - Network reboot” after that my VPN seems to work as usual but i have to do it again after reboot.
