OpenVPN iOS stopped working in iOS11



  • OpenVPN client worked fine in iOS10 but after ive upgraded to iOS10 i can only stay connected for 5sec then it reconnects. Here are some part of the log file with the ip and hostname changed.

    And what does the server log say?

    Work has not given the go ahead for ios11 on phone yet, but do have it on my ipad at home.  When I get home I will verify that vpn connection still works with ios11, or maybe it will duplicate your problem..

    Works here. SSL/TLS+User Auth via RADIUS. 11.0 and after updating to 11.0.1. No OpenVPN Connect update shows as available.

    Just like on iOS 10.



  • It seems to work no so I guess it not a problem anymore.
