Hi,

I have openvpn client on my iphone to connect to my home network.
It is great since it reconnects whenever I have an Internet connection, BUT ....
On my home network it should not use openvpn/vpn at all.
How can I make this happen?

It is not likely to work on your own LAN because it is trying to connect to the same IP and same subnet. It thinks it is remote and is not. VPN does not connect on the home LAN; it needs to be remote.   So what you see is normal.

Found a solution myself: dns entry which points openvpn dns to local openvpn ip.
