On my iPhone the VPN connection drops of after a few minuets of inactivity. PIA
I downloaded the app for OpenVPN, but couldn't figure out how to get it to work with my Ubiquiti USG. Likewise with Tasker - all too obscure for me to get started.
I can't help you with the Ubiquity. I use the low priced spread, Asus, and it was a snap with that. I'm sure someone in the Ubiquity crowd will chime in with help, though.
I have the Ubiquiti Edgerouter Lite and just use L2TP over IPSec since it was easier to configure. Ubiquiti routers do support OpenVPN but its all command line and I haven't found a guide online that doesn't leave some gaps in my understanding of it. I've also read it doesn't really have the horsepower to run OpenVPN well anyway.
I'm really thinking of getting a Netgate router with pfSense instead. pfSense supports OpenVPN in the GUI and also supports a lot more security features. The price of pfSense appliances have come down a lot in the last couple of years so the choice is no longer between a $500 appliance or an old PC that pulls 50w idle. They say even the $150 model will handle 100Mbps over OpenVPN.
