iOS OpenVPN Connection Settings

iOS OpenVPN Connection Settings

Tested for configuration:

iPhone SE

OpenVPN Connect 3.2.3 app


Download the OpenVPN Connect app from the App Store, which is the official app since

Stažení OpenVPN iPhone

The VPN server administrator should provide you with a configuration file via email or on an external URL. This file will have the .ovpn extension. Ideally, it will contain connection information and, directly, the certificates needed to connect. Download the file from your email and save it to iPhone. Ok. Unfortunatelly I was not able to open file in OpenVPN app directly.  We'll need some File Manager to open the file. If you don't have one, you can download a simple file manager:

OpenVPN iOS - File Manager

Open the file manager and find the folder where you downloaded the .ovpn configuration file from your email. Hold and choose Open In... and select Copy to OpenVPN Connect

Fill in the connection details provided by the VPN server administrator and connect.

Once you have successfully connected, you can see your VPN address and access the internal network.

Here you can see the configuration .ovpn file we used.

Tip: If you can't access the internal network after connecting, contact your VPN administrator. From the VPN range, the router must be allowed a rule of access to other networks, as well as whether or not to see each other's VPN users. The settings how to enable OpenVPN on MikroTik routers can be found on this blog.

Advanced disk cloningRating: 

The classic disk cloning tool in linux is the dd command. This command creates a image of disk or extracts the contents from the image to disk. The dd tool needs to be handled carefully and you need to understand its use. We'll show a more advanced technique of creating a disc image that contains unallocated space. A classic example is when I have a Raspbian operating system installed on a 250 GB disc, but there's only a tiny boot partition (e.g. sda1) and my own operating system partition (sda2) which together have 15 GB. Instead of saving a 250 GB image, I would like to save only two partitions with 15 GB, so that the image is smaller and can be expanded to 16 or 32 GB flash.
