Oh, I'm using a T22P running the current firmware. Pls fix.

I had to fight with this bug for a few hours before getting into an acceptable workaround.

The bug seems to happen because OpenVPN tries to resolve the FQDN before the phone gets its IP and for some reason it then avoids the phone to get the IP, even if we tell OpenVPN to not attepmt indefinitely (i.e., resolv-retry infinite).

The workaround that worked for me is to fool OpenVPN in the first attempt so that the next time, when it retries 5 seconds later, the network is already available:

Here is the trick:

Where you define your remote in the vpn.cnf like this:
remote port-number

You add a line before it containing a loopback interface reference:
remote any-port-number
remote port-number

For obvious reasons the first server will fail and after 5 secs, OpenVPN will try the second. At this point, the network will already be functional and the FQDN resolution will work.

Hope it works for you too.
