Hello all!
I have a RT-AC56U running an older RMerlin release - 380.57 (I'll look into upgrading when I have a bit of time). I've just enabled openvpn server, configured accounts and downloaded the generated ovpn file to my clients.

The problem is the clients (Android phones) are able to authenticate to the network just by using the ovpn file - no username/password is requested.

Is this how it is supposed to work? Or did I fudge something up in the config?

Point me in the right direction and I'll start digging, thanks!
