IPv6 Setting OpenVPN on Android

Post by gengkai » Fri Jun 05, 2015 9:42 am

Hello.

My server(Windows) using Softether VPN Server and provide IPv6 service to the client. For PC, user can connect to the VPN and manually configure the IPv6 address. It works fine for PC client.

I downloaded OpenVPN Connect on Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 to connect to the server. The Android client have access to the IPv4 only but not IPv6.

So, my question is how to get IPv6 on Android client? I already try but it failed.

Thank you.

Please try L2-mode OpenVPN.

I have L2-Mode VPN bridged to eth0 that tunnels dual stack using the SoftEther and OpenVPN protocols, but I cant get it to work on Android using OpenVPN client either.

It looks to me the problem is that Android OpenVPN clients dont use the VPN API to be able to use option dev_tap in ovpn_client_config

I ended up finding a OpenVPN client that workes to tunnel IPv6 on android... but its not free.

You have to change few things in the OpenVPN client config:

dev tap
tun ipv6
