    Hi,

    I've been holding back this question ever since Kitkat (4.4) hit the phones.
    How come it's not possible to connect to any devices within any lan when connected to a VPN service? It worked fine pre-kitkat. I've been holding back on upgrading for long while now but I couldn't resist any longer.
    I've noticed that it's possible to WoL (wake on lan) though. Why is that? Is there a way to work out being connected to a VPN service and still discover other devices on the current LAN?

    Best regards.

    Oh interesting for me this one . Have you had any luck yet ? From what you say pre 4.4 may be the key to my tether issue. Maybe rooting is the way for you to modify a rom and remedy the issue

    Well I am happy with my solution so far . Seeing it is unrooted as well :) download a wifi client to the laptop . Then pdanet+ on the mobile also a vpn on the mobile . Connect via usb and bingo 4-8Mbps on my amazon fire stick. Running spinz tv in kodi [emoji41]. Although it's not graceful,it works hahaha lol I beat you three network [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16]
