Well, neither of those two .log files exist in my tree, or anything that looks related.

I can connect from 3 other machines: One running debian stretch, and another running debian stretch in a vm, as well as another running WIndows 7-64 in a vm. The only problem is with my android phone.

The tutorial you linked was the one I used.

Hi @davewittenborn

How did you install OpenVPN - did you follow one of the tutorials here on DO, which? Which version of Debian and OpenVPN server? When you generated the certificate for the client, did you use TLS1.2 or only TLS1.0? Can you supply your OpenVPN log, so it’s easier to debug?
