This TLS Error appeared 1 of april no matter TCP or UDP config used.
Looks like it is very common problem cos a lot of users complain they cant use VPN gate anymore.
Whats happend with VPN gate?

I have exactly the same issue since 1 of april. Can not connect to any of server due to this TLS error. Looks like something is broken on vpngate side with certificates system.

JFYI:
It seems it may be possible to temporarily workaround the current cert. problem (caused by cert pki/cert chain changes) till it is fixed.

Assuming openvpn client is used:

(1) Get the root certificate for AddTrust External:
https://support.comodo.com/index.php?/c ... ew/917/91/
(For Linux, it may be already available at the cert store - ie. /etc/ssl/certs/AddTrust_External_Root.pem if debian-based)

Then, either (2) or (3):

(2) Manually open vpngate config file, and copy/paste the root certificate for AddTrust External to the <ca> section like:
.....
<ca>
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

(3) Or run openvpn command with --ca option (if this is feasible)
openvpn --config ... --ca /path/to/addtrustexternalcaroot.crt ...

It has been tested under linux and osx, and runs ok. I assume it would run on windows as well.

hope it helps.. cheers..

Where to reside this AddTrust External file? In the config directory?
Should the old and existing CERTIFICATE be replaced by the new one you suggested or keep the old one as well?

Can someone please contact them to get this problem fixed? I'm not good at speaking on phones. I'd really like to get back to using openvpn on my mobile devices. :/ This sucks.

Probably better to save it to a separate directory as it may be a temp. workaround. Actually if an old one exists, both may be identical (ie. under Linux). I assume the problem would be eventually fixed by vpngate.

Probably (2) method may possibly work. Maybe you can download the config file, add cert, and transfer it to your ipad to import somehow (ie. through email?)

Thanks. It works on both my MacBook Pro and Nexus 5x. I download the certificate, open it in text editor and then copy the CA to the ovpn file.

It is NOT fixed.
They’d have posted an update or replied to this topic if they’d fixed the problem.

Looks like no one’s in over the weekend.
I called yesterday afternoon and left a message on their voicemail.

Unfortunately adding the AddTrust External certificate solved the problem just temporarily.
Now I get

That happened to me just some minutes ago (after having it working last night, then wake up to see it's broken again). I had to download a new openvpn config file from the homepage, then once again add the AddTrust External certificate line to the config file. I guess this only works for a couple hours, then it stops working and you need to do it again.

I don’t see any response from the VPN Gate team as expected, but my VPN is functioning today.

UPDATE: well, only 2 out of 30 servers are actually connecting.
The success rate is usually much higher than that!

Sure would be nice if the team would respond to let us know what the issue is and when it might be fixed!

JFYI. At least for me, it looks like vpngate is working again (does not seems to work with the workaround)

thanks!

A couple servers were working this morning for a short time, then they cut out and now none will connect.


What’s up VPN Gate ? HOW ABOUT AN UPDATE?!

The OpenVPN app on my Android phone only works with the 1.16 version released in 2015, but not the 1.17 released 2016. What's up with that? But connection is a lot more unstable than it was before, frequent disconnects and my internet seems slower when I'm connected.

Any news on this? Connectivity on OpenVPN and SoftEther's app seem very unstable, and I can't connect through OpenVPN Android at all (I keep getting PolarSSL X509 - signature check failed errors). I can connect to other VPNs just fine though, but I like to use VPNGate since the hosts are less likely to be ASN banned.

Couldn't have worded it better. At the end of the day, this is a free service provided by university students which probably don't have all the time to look into the project. It sucks, but I'll gladly wait for the issue to be solved. All we can do is report it and give feedback.

I wasn’t aware of who the site is run by, but even the busiest college student can spare 5 minutes to post an update.

All I wanted was something like "the problem was caused by xxx and we expect it to be resolved soon/eventually/never."
Some form of acknowledgement that they’re even aware of the problem.

No doubt they’ve texted hundreds of times and/or sent many emails during this outage.
Probably enjoyed a beer or three too.

If it’s a cert. issue, why do some servers still connect at different times?
Sometimes none will connect, but later one or two will.

This may help someone:

I’ve discovered that if I delete the old servers that won’t connect and re-add them from VPN Gate, they begin working again.

If it was a certificate issue as reported, then it seems replacing the old config files with new ones (which presumably have the new certificate) makes them functional once again.
