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.

Another bump for a solution. I'm on the August 1st build and this issue still remains. Might I suggest asking @voodik for advice? His XU4 lineageOS work with Ethernet is near flawless.

Many thanks, voodik. Any chance the Ethernet VPN fix will make it into the next HK release?

The patch has been mailed by voodik, thank you, and it would be applied on the release of this week or next week after having some test.
