OpenVPN client configuration file doesn't accept separated authentication file upload?

It seems that 4.0 beta 8 UI doesn’t accept OpenVPN client configuration file with embedded pointing to separate external “username/password” text file. (Mullvad autogenerated OpenVPN files from their website)

Although it has option to input authentication info in the UI.

So, the only solution is modifying the .OVPN file manually ?

The ovpn should contain a line like


Then the UI will ask for username and password.

What is the ovpn you have like?

Yes, it indeed includes a line “auth-user-pass xxxxx.txt”. (separated authentication file)

Ok. I this case you will be asked to input the username and password anyway. It will recreate this file.

So this should be fine.
