I see topics of interest, are you all using PIA? Which one is better and cheaper for PIA and IPVanish? I recently saw an article about VPN introduction, to be honest, I have been struggling between the two.

I thought i would give this a try tonight, got the same error. I edited the .ovpn file of the location i wanted to connect to. US Chicago.ovpn and removed the <crl-verify> and </crl-verify> lines from the config file. Then just followed rest of the settings. Worked great. From what i gather, it has something to do with the certification revoke list. Something out the client doesn't like that parameter. I dont think there is any real harm in removing it, except that if PIA want to revoke a cert your client wont check every time to see if its valid.
Can confirm that the error stops if you open the ovpn file and edit out the <crl-verify> and </crl-verify>, but doesn't this for sure remove some security mechanism?
Also worth mentioning that privateinternetaccess (PIA) is a pay service which I wasn't aware of, with this in mind could save some new guy some time.
