    Hi everyone,

    I have a rooted Motorola Droid running the Barnacle WiFi tether app which has been working great. The problem I am having is trying to use a VPN connection over the Barnacle Wifi. Is this even possible ? Or maybe possible with a different wifi tethering app ?

    I have tried connecting to my VPN first with the Droid and then turning on the Barnacle Wifi Tether which doesnt work. Then I have tried starting up the Wifi Tether and then trying to connect the VPN from the Droid and also tried connecting to the VPN using my iPad connected to the barnacle wifi, with no luck. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I havent done anything special to get the iPad to connect to the Barnacle Wifi. I have noticed there are some times that it wont associate with the Barnacle the first try, so I will press the "Stop" button on Barnacle, Start it up again and then at the same time on the iPad turn Off and then Back On the Wifi ...it should then appear in your list of Wifi networks on the iPad. Other than that..I havent had any issues with it.

    When you connect your iPad to the Droid using Barnacle, do you see your iPad device name showing up in the Barnacle window on the Droid ? If its not showing up as a connected device in Barnacle, then its not really connected. Try the method above with turning off and on barnacle and turning off and on the wifi on the ipad, you should be able to get it going hopefully.
