PIA VPN configuration file can’t paste through iPhone.

Recommended Posts

I had installed private internet access “PIA” with a laptop months ago. For whatever reason connection fails now. I don’t have no computer at the moment but I’m on iPhone. I can go to hybrid vpn section advanced enter username and password but can’t paste the pia openvpn configuration file. 
 

Has anyone ever setup hybrid vpn through iPhone????

I'm not overly experienced with iPhones, but I think you'd need some kind of notepad app or coding app that can open files and let you see them in their text form. Does iOS even let you download files?

It has a notepad but I don’t know what to use to view the configuration line copy it and then paste  it within the hybrid vpn configuration screen.

You're supposed to copy the actual contents of the file. If you can't do it on an iPhone, send the file to me and i'll send you back the contents.

Ok it is VERY possible to setup the hybridVPN using private internet access VPN service without the use of a computer.

 

I used my wife’s android phone instead of the iPhone. I used a file manager app to see the line code and it was plain as day! I’m sure anyone that’s more savy with iPhone can get the same result, I just don’t know how.

 

only thing now is it says “connected”  I added my cell phone to list and when I go to PIA website it still shows me not being protected by the PIA 
 

I’m going to reboot router and see if that’s helps.

 

well did reboot but phone is still not saving to add device list.

 

do I need to add advance settings for ports beginning/end destinations?
