AXt1800 router problems with Proton VPN OpenVPN tcp setup

Hi
I can’t setup VPN connection.

How did you set up the connection?

Got the openvpn files from the proton website and uploaded them in the openvpn client tab. Does this answer your question?

Yup. Does the config work when you use it from another device like your PC?

Haven’t tried, will do

This is the content of the file

client
dev tun
proto tcp

remote 103.125.235.18 7770
remote 103.125.235.18 443
remote 103.125.235.18 8443

remote-random
resolv-retry infinite
nobind

cipher AES-256-GCM

setenv CLIENT_CERT 0
tun-mtu 1500
mssfix 0
persist-key
persist-tun

reneg-sec 0

remote-cert-tls server
auth-user-pass

above logs…

Just a guess because I am just on my phone right now: Maybe it’s not possible to use OpenVPN with user password? Is there even a place where you can enter it on the router?

When I upload the file, router asks me for username and password, I set protonvpn username password

So you might test if they are correct.
