    Hi there. This is my first post here. Would like to say this forum has been a great help learning how to use my first android phone.

    I have rooted my phone using the prerooted image, as well as using PDAnet to tether to my laptop. I've been trying to get some MMOs (SWTOR and The Secret World) to work and I'm pretty sure the problem is the ports are blocked. A friend suggested I tried setting up a VPN, either through a subscription service or to my home computer, in order to bypass this.

    I have tried using FreeVPN, DroidVPN and a couple others on the marketplace. None of them work. DroidVPN said it was unable to find a tun.ko file for the phone. So I'm curious if it is possible to run VPN on this phone, if anyone has any insight on this I would love to hear it. Thank you.

    tl;dr Can the Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G connect to any VPNs?

    I use droidvpn to run a Linux environment on both mentioned devices without issue but i haven't actually tried connecting to a pc.

    How did you get around the tun.ko issue on this phone when using DroidVPN?

    Um.. It worked out of the box... Hold on, ill make a video to
    Show exactly what i do because i think we are using the app for two completely different things here.

    This is what happens when I load DroidVPN, followed the directions to get the file to no success.

    i just realized what i actually use androidvnc not vpn for my Linux set up....

    i would do what the warning says and use a root explorer to add the file.

    i know that playful god has it. maybe ask him to dropbox it.

    also set permissions correctly. ask pg he may know what they are.
