      With an udpated set of config files I received from infra@suse.de openvpn now works on sle12.

      I noticed massive changes in SUSE.conf.NUE, SUSE/SUSE-sndirsch.crt and SUSE/SUSE-sndirsch.key since 2008. Also it seems SUSE/SUSE-ca.crt became ta.key (but changed as well). SUSE/SUSETrustRoot.crt is completely new.

        It turned out, that there has been updated files in 2013, so I was testing with obsolete config files.

      So in case you're running into a similar or even idental problem, I suggest asking for updated openvpn config files first. --> infra@suse.de

      What about getting SUSE VPN to work with IPv6 ? It probably needs some server-side fixes too.

      IPv6 support is available with the openvpn package for SLE12 - so it should be possible once the servers are upgraded.

      Received a hint to try "OpenVPN for Android" by Arne Schwabe. It's an opensource client based on the OpenVPN project. It's capable of using a regular openvpn config file as input. And it nearly works from the beginnning with the config file we're using for SUSE. Only thing I needed to comment out were the "<connnection>" lines and adjust the path of the certification/key files and up/down scripts.

      As a plus I tried to get this running also in the Android emulator, which in the end didn't work out. I wasn't successful in figuring out why. This was on Android 5.0. I also wanted to test with other Android versions, but time was running out.
