Hi,

I have a working  Openvpn connection. However, for that I needed to jailbreak my Iphone (to use Guizmo Openvnp). I upgraded my Iphone to a new version and would like not to jailbreak anymore.
Therefore I would like to use the new OpenVpn Connect but I’m not sure howto configure this. I know have a zip-file, which I upload to my Iphone, in that zip-file there is a cert, a ovpn-configfile and a passwordfile.
The configfile is beneath. Please advise howto configure this in OpenVpn Connect.

J.

# It means the VPN connection will firstly connect to the VPN Server
# and then to the internet.

Some limitation to note - iOS provides a utun interface, which only does layer 3

Also noted this using --proto tcp in IOS 6, TCP support is broken in iOS app. It is bug
