OpenVPN: Pausing (waiting for network)

Unread post by redbird » Mon Apr 08, 2019 5:17 am

When trying to connect to AirVPN via OpenVPN, I'm getting a notification stating:

OpenVPN: Pausing (waiting for network)

...then the network won't work until the ethernet cable is replugged.

Any ideas?

Hi, redbird.
I installed ExpressVPN app and connected via Wi-Fi.
I could connect to the internet via VPN but I don't know why ethernet was disconnected.
If you have Wi-Fi module, try to use that for VPN.

Thanks codewalker.

When I used the WiFi module, it forced me to enter a pin and complete the setup. After doing so, OpenVPN work as expected using WiFi.

Then, I shutdown, removed the WiFi module, and restarted the system. When I tried OpenVPN using the same credential file, I got the same message as in my first post.

Please let me know if I should be doing something different to get VPN working with Ethernet.

Sorry that I don't know the difference between wifi and ethernt.
It seems we need enough time to solve the problem.

@codewalker,
It must be worth to research how the Xposed Module implements the fake-wifi connection.
Something like this : https://github.com/chylek/FakeWifi

The 20190509 update solved many graphics quirks, much appreciated!

Maybe the issue of OpenVPN working with Wifi but not Ethernet is still on the list? :)

This replug-cable-to-work-again actually also happens when using the Windscribe VPN app, so it might be a general VPN related problem.
