Openvpn ios redirect-gateway time out when trying to reconnect

Posted on 2014-01-09

I have this openvpn connect on my Iphone. Working fine when I use redirect gateway option reconnects fail.
F.e. I connect openvpn client, then I put the Iphone in standby (press power button). After a while I wan tto use my Iphone, I see the OpenVPN client tries to reconnect but cannot since it says the network times out.

In other words, first connect goes fine, but when it reconnects, it probably searches for my remote network to make the reconnection.
Please advise.

Actually this happens:


2013-11-14 15:14:48 OS Event: SLEEP
2013-11-14 15:14:48 EVENT: PAUSE
2013-11-14 15:15:47 OS Event: WAKEUP
but this only happens when I use the
redirect gateway option.
