Notsure Has anyone been able to get VPN working?

Has anyone been able to get a VPN connection up and running with this 'phone - if so which VPN provider did you use?

Thanks in advance,

It is not possible at all. ZTE Racer Linux kernel (Android 2.1) does not contain neccessary modules. So VPN has user interface, but it is one big fake. You need:
1. get root on phone
2. download linux kernel from ZTE
3. compile necessary linux kernel modules
4. copy modules to phone
5. load modules every time after restarting phone from linux shell

E.g. for L2TP you will need: ppp_generic.ko pppox.ko pppol2tp.ko

Thanks for the reply sibnick... I note there is quite a bit of work going on on ROMs... All Kown Roms To Date - Android @ MoDaCo

The link to the kernel source is here... http://support.zte.com.cn/support/news/NewsMain.aspx?type=service (page 2)

Not sure whether I will just compile the modules or try a ROM, prob. the former but I do actually have 2 ZTE Racers so the latter maybe also
