Unable To Connect To OpenVPN

I just started using this app again recently and have found that I can not connect to my openVPN profiles that I set up.

The app states that it is connected to the VPN, an icon shows up in the top right corner of my Samsung S21 phone, but when I run a speed test, it still shows me in my current location.

I have tried multiple config files from two different VPN providers, same result.

It works fine when connecting via WireGuard.

Any suggestions to remedy this issue would be most welcome.

maybe the remote OpenVPN server doesn't push the redirect-gateway option.
Please try to set it manually:
  • edit the VPN profile
  • tap on "IPv4 Routes"
  • select "Redirect gateway"
  • save the changes
