To be clear, OpenVPN is hard, very hard if you are not a skilled network person. I probably have over 100 hrs into this over the last year reading and testing. I’m sure this is discouraging, but it is what it is. That said, my environment was more complex (server and client)
To diagnose ANY OpenVPN issues you MUST post the following files.
/tmp/openvpn-log.log => see below
In your openvpn file set the verb value to 3 or more (I use 4) add the following line
option log ‘/tmp/openvpn-log.log’
Install WinSCP on your client. Use this to login and learn how to navigate to the above files and folders.

In addition to the above, post the delivered openvon.opvn file for linux from Finch for reference.
@ramasamy, upgrade your device to 2.13. If you are trying to connect to a different service, please start a new thread.
There are some pay services, including PIA, which do have preconfigured OpenVPN files.
Forums will only get you so far. In general this is NOT going to be your best resource for OpenVPN support. I would start with OpenVPN, then OpenWrt, then here. Also Google your service provider name and OpenWrt (ie: finch vpn openwrt) for blogs and other how toos. You must be prepared to spend some hours testing and learning the parameters. This in NOT plug and play.
Once you have openvpn-openssl and luci-app installed, this is really NOT a GLI issue. Not that we will not try to help, but it’s a narrow user set, and even narrower for those using OpenVPN. I am not using a public service, and my personal client\server config is not really going to be helpful.
