Thank you for the tutorial,
However there is still a critical bug flying aroung regarding the password which mostlikely will frustate users
The trick is described at the end of the first post.
So, look in the header of your .ovpn file, all the info should be present in the client config.
For instance are you sure about no additional TLS auth ?
my header look like
dev tun proto udp remote utouch.org 8080 resolv-retry infinite nobind persist-key persist-tun key-direction 1 remote-cert-tls server tls-version-min 1.2 verify-x509-name server_retefdr434534erger34345 name cipher AES-256-CBC auth SHA256 comp-lzo verb 1
See below the config matching
Ps don't forget to create/copy paste your key and ca correctly in a dedicated file.
Next time you share log please use : https://paste.ubuntu.com/
So it seems that the connection is set it up correctly and also it's normal that your browser doesn't get the VPN ip. My phone has the same behavior while connecting from phablet-shell.
I guess the issue remains in your system setting config. Open the VPN editor app and took a screenshot of each page your vpn setting with personal data hidden.
Can you try to activate verbose mode and share the logs (after removing sensitive data) ?
did you try with sudo ?
Try to tune the setup with the app enclosed https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/46
look also in advanced setting
