Deploy ovpn profile on a device?

Good day! 

Is it possible to deploy an .ovpn Profile on a device that is already enrolled? OpenVpn client is installed on the android already.

Many thanks,


  • Hello Bero, 

    Thank you for reaching out to the Sophos Community.

    Do you know if the profile that will be deployed onto the mobile device is an MDM profile that will apply to the device as a whole, or is the profile specific to the OpenVPN application only?

    If you have a test device, I recommend trying this out to see how it behaves. If the OpenVPN profile behaves similar to that of an MDM profile, there’s a chance that it may over-write the Sophos Mobile Control configurations.

  • I would like to deploy a profile for the OpenVPN client app on the android phone and I would like to know how is the best way to do this so could you please guide me? I have a test version of Sophos central, we are still testing the system to know if it would be suitable for our needs.

    Many thanks for the reply.
