I had 'Always-on VPN' (i.e. built in IPSec Xaut PSK VPN) working with Nougat (AEX 4.6). After making a clean flash to Oreo (AEX 5.4) I can connct to VPN. However, when I check 'Always-on VPN' the status changes to 'Connected'. However, I do not get an internet connection (e.g. browsing does not work).
Did anyone get it to work and if so how?

There is some bug on AEX because it is working on RR O v6. I turned on the always-on VPN and was able to browse on chrome, play store, etc.

Thanks for the info. I have tried AEX 5.2 now (i.e. non treble) and it does not work either. With AEX 4.6, however, it works.
