OpenVPN File to iPhone



  • I realize the iPhone OpenVPN app has several different methods of importing a private tunnel (apparently it's an .ovpn file), however, I'm just wondering if anyone has ever tried to import their private tunnel by connecting their iPhone to a Linux or Mac machine and copied it to the iPhone in this manner?  Can it even be done?  Thanks.

    Yes. You can use iTunes. Phone > Apps > File Sharing.



  • I am looking for different way, not using iTunes or any of the other ways the OpenVPN app suggests, but to actually copy/paste the file to a path on the iPhone while the iPhone is connected to a Linux box.  Is this possible?  I hope that makes sense.

    Don't believe the iPhone environment will allow that.

    There might be something that allows transfers but it has nothing to do with pfSense.

    Maybe someone else knows.
