Question

OpenVPN for Android does not recognize the remote-random switch of your opvn files when attempting to import them.

 

Please advise, specifically.

I'm using the App you cite in your tutorial, as I cited above...'OpenVPN for Android'.

 

Here's the error I get...

 

'Unsupported Option remote-random encountered in config file. Aborting.'

 

I emailed the dev, and he responded with 'try removing the remote-random switch'.

 

It's interesting that the tutorial works with this App. Had you maybe not used remote-random at the tutorial time?

OpenVPN for Android i didn't realise was actually the name of the app (Not a regular Android user) so it could have been meaning any Android app for all i know, we do 3/4 tutorials for different OpeVPN android apps.

 

If you would be more specific and point to tuts you followed it would help - I'm not sure why they wouldn't support remote-random but you can download individual configs from the My Servers page if thats the case.

 

Your correct though - we didn't use remote-random at that time.

Here's the link to your own tutorial...it's the one that shows you how to use OpenVPN on Android (hint hint)

Since the dev of the App recommended removing remote-random, please provide me what code I would replace that section with. I would imagine it to be a specific IP? What would the code replacement look like...specifically.

If you cannot use the remote-random option then you will need to download individual configs from under the My Servers section.

I had the same problem with open vpn for android downloaded from play store.

 

solution download torguardpro.zip

unzip

find .ovpn (for the server you want to use)

change to .txt

find "remote-random" line

delete "remote-random" line

save

change back to .ovpn

load on phone

select the edited .ovpn from openvpn for android app

 

you will also need the certificate for the server from the zip file
