Default OpenVPN help for galaxy s 2 I9100G

Hello guys

so i got openvpn and installed it and everything but somehow when i click the .ovpn file it doesn't work, it doesn't put a tick mark next to it, it says that it was granted superuser permission but nothing else happens.

so what could be the problem if anyone had this before and was able to fix it
any help would be greatly appreciated thank you in advance.

Can you post your .ovpn file? Be careful not to post anything that could compromise your privacy!
Please also post a screenshot of the 'OpenVPN Settings' App when clicking Menu -> Advanced.

Which Vpn are you using ?, when i tried using open vpn on mine it didnt work, The vpn provider told me to set it up through the vpn settings in the phone itself and that worked fine for me, could be worth a try

He is using OpenVPN, not "part of the phone".

Sorry for the delay in replying, but here are 2 images of the settings but i don't think the .ovpn files has any issues i think its only the phone or openvpn itself.

Well, if you think your .ovpn file is fine and certificate(s) and key(s) are at correct locations then you should take a look at the log.
To do this use 'adb' with the 'logcat' command. As soon as 'logcat' is running try to tick your OpenVPN configuration and check the log for any errors.

This is what I get when the status bar asks me to enter the certificate password (did some manual formatting for better reading ):

Note: OpenVPN is waiting here for the password. I did not enter it yet.

From what you said you do not even reach this 'checkpoint' so for now there is no need to debug any further.

Seems to be a problem with root. From your log:

Code:
E/su      (31797): sudb - Opening database
E/su      (31797): sudb - Database opened
E/su      (31797): sudb - Database closed
If I'm not mistake OpenVPN must be executed as superuser. From my log:
Code:
D/OpenVPN-DaemonMonitor[/sdcard/openvpn/VPNTEST.ovpn]-daemon(12164): invoking external process: /system/xbin/su
D/OpenVPN-DaemonMonitor[/sdcard/openvpn/VPNTEST.ovpn]-daemon(12164): invoking command line: /system/xbin/openvpn --cd '/sdcard/openvpn' --config 'VPNTEST.ovpn' --writepid '/data/data/de.schaeuffelhut.android.openvpn/files/com.d/_sdcard_openvpn_VPNTEST.ovpn-pid' --script-security 1 --management 127.0.0.1 39157 --management-query -passwords --verb 3
Look at the green bold line: it is running su, only afterwards OpenVPN is invoked.
From your log (same location as in mine) I can see that there is a problem with root access.
To test this you can use 'adb' and the 'shell' command. Enter 'su' yourself to get root access. Then enter the command line from your log. I bet if 'su' succeeds, i.e. you get root access, then OpenVPN will start .
