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.
