Trying to connect from iPad to UK (area) proxy servers per instructions here




Connection not established, throws "Connection timeout", I've tried "Advanced Options",  "Resolved hosts in .ovpn file" and  "All servers for area or region" as per here




OpenVPN log attached (openvpn.txt). 


Any suggestions most appreciated.

I have the same issue with OpenVPN Connect via iOS iPod.
The issue is related to TCP: UDP profiles work correctly.
Does anyone here use OpenVPN Connect in iOS with TCP profiles?
Thanks for any feedback.

I just tested it on my iOS8 iphone.  openvpn connect with TCP 443 profile.  connected right up, no problem, on both home internet (wifi) and cellular data.


I also tried same profile in guizmovpn and it worked as well.
