HTTP on Android problem through OpenVPN



  • Hi,

    I've been hitting a wall today trying to get a Chrome on Android (7.1)  working through OpenVPN on a LTE connection (I am using the officiel Android OpenVPN client).  What drives me nuts is that everything else is working as it should.

    For example, the following work :

    1. Pinging local machines with Android OpenVPN client connected
    2. SSHing into local machines with Android OpenVPN client connected
    3. Using OpenVPN on a PC that is using the android phone  LTE connection thru a hotspot and HTTPing into local machines
    4. Pinging, SSHing and HTTPing into local machine using OpenVPN on android connected on Wifi.

    Whats not working is using the android phone on LTE and HTTPing into local machines. Chrome times out, and so does firefox. But if this was an issue with LTE being too slow, my third example (PC through hotspot) wouldn't work either.  Routing is good since I can ping/SSH into stuff.

    Can anyone point me in the general direction of a solution?  I feel this has to do with Android's Chrome and Firefox specifically, but not sure where to start.
