    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
