I had high hopes with the Turris Omnia that it would allow even not so tech savvy users to use OpenWRT easily and safely. Unfortunately this has not been the case so far.
I set up OpenVPN via FORIS and now I want to set it up on the client Android phone. I have donwloaded the config file. Once I rename the file to OVPN (as stated inside the file) it can import, but no connection can be made. The app always states “There was an error attempting to connect to the selected server”. I had to enter the IP manually inside the downloaded CONF file. Autodetection did not seem to work as in the file it is stated “remote <server_adddress> 1194”. I tried both the IPv4 and IPv6 address according to “wieistmeineip.de”.
When trying to connect via OpenVPN-GUI on my Windows 10 PC, he cannot resolve the IPv4 address but with the IPv6 at least I get “read UDPv6: Unknown error (code=10054)”. The Turris Omnia is connected to the internet via a Unitymedia router, but on this one I disabled the firewall, so it should not be a blocked port.
This is now the second time I’m trying to get OpenVPN going. One time via SSH when there was not the “quick and easy” setup via Foris and now via Foris. Both times it did not work.
Could it be an issue of the provider? I use the cable provider Unitymedia.
Is there a way I can find out if the configuration is done correctly and it is a client issue?
