I deleted my post because I realized I had dumped some old ovpn files into the folder while trying to resolve this. I corrected the ovpn files and rolled the container back two versions to rtorrent-ps-1.1.r54.ga787dd9-1-16 and it is connecting now. If you would like me to go back to latest and troubleshoot I am willing to do that. Otherwise I will just try a later version when available. Sorry for wasting your time.
