How can I configure Android with SoftEther VPN Server?

Post by AleXSR700 » Sun Jun 07, 2020 10:23 am

Hello everyone,

I am trying to get my Android phone to connect to my SoftEther VPN server.
It works without any issues with Windows, but fails no matter what I try in Android.

Which settings must I set on the server and how do I configure my Android phone?

The help/website does not go into any real details and the things that are stated do not work. Has someone created e.g. an OpenVPN profile and knows how to do so?

I have now even created server and user certificates and still can't get it to run. There must a simple solution to this.

My internet provider, by the way, only uses DS-Lite, so I can only be reached by IPv6.

Here is my config. Maybe someone can tell me what I set up wrongly or how I need to authenticate myself from Android?

Thank you in advance! I am really going crazy here :(

Hi,

thank you for your reply, but I am giving up on SoftEther.
Unfortunately the capabilities seem great on paper but it is too, well, unreliable. I need a more reliable implementation of a VPN server that works with all devices equally well.

Not sure what will be my next step, but probably looking for a device with built in VPN capabilities.

Thank you all for your help though :)
