If you wish to configure a proxy for your VPN connection, go to Network > VPN > OpenVPN > [Session Name] > Proxy. Here you can configure:

  • Proxy Type: SOCKS or HTTP, by default this is set to None
  • Proxy Address and Proxy Port
  • Retry indefinitely when errors occur

If you select the HTTP proxy type you can configure:

  • Proxy Username
  • Proxy Password

    When using a proxy, set Options > Protocol used for communication to the host to tcp-client.
    When experiencing issues with OpenVPN, read the messages in /var/log/messages, e.g. using the System Log Viewer.
