Works Perfectly Not much to say aside from the fact that it works quickly and easily - perfect. Up to 11/17 - now it keeps saying that I need to install OpenVPN for Android, which is installed... I am not going to remove stars to hold you hostage until you fix this - just please do so sooner rather than later as I use it a lot!
Simple and effective Not the prettiest of UI but it works a treat. OpenVPN Connect 0.6.63 doesn't want to work with it (I can't mark it trusted, just keeps asking) but 0.6.60 works just fine. Install F-Droid and get it from there.
This doesn't work with OpenVPN Connect (the official OpenVPN app). It forces you to use "OpenVPN for Android" developed by Arne Schwabe. This app isn't up to date with the latest OpenVPN standards. This presents security issues and I don't know when Arne is going to update.
To all those concerned that this Tasker plug-in won't work with OpenVPN for Android, the version of that app that presented problems is very much a thing of the past. If you use the current version of OpenVPN for Android (0.6.50 as I write this), you will find that this plug-in works flawlessly with it. I'm using the OpenVPN Tasker Plug-in to bring my ExpressVPN up and down. Although there's a nice enough official ExpressVPN app in the Play Store, it doesn't expose any intents for remote use, so there's no way to use Tasker to initiate and tear down a VPN connection. A very nice enhancement of this plug-in would be to allow the user to pass as a Tasker variable to OpenVPN for Android the name of the profile to connect with. This would make it easy to build a profile name from any number of conditions (day/evening, location, etc.) and bring up any one of a dozen profiles with a single line of Tasker code.
Application needs an extra permission to communicate with openvpn for android, but it will not "stick" when you grant it on the app setting page. Because of this, it can't communicate with openvpn so it's useless.
Use an earlier release is not acceptable!! By the time I reconfigured Open VPN, google had re-updated it back to the latest release. You need to make the plugin work with the latest release!!
