Create OpenVPN connection on iOS

I want to create OpenVPN connection in my application, can't find any information if it is possible without OpenVPN connection app installed.
Is it possible?

Answer Source

No, it is not possible to create OpenVPN Connect in iOS device without OpenVPN connection app installed.

As you can see all VPN providers like PureVPN and privateinternetaccess and many others create OpenVPN connection via OpenVPN app only.

Hope this helps.


To check if openVPN is installed or not you can use following code which I found from OpenVPN doc

BOOL installed = [[UIApplication sharedApplication] canOpenURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"openvpn://"]];
