    G'day,

    I am currently in China and therefor run a VPN on my PC to connect to the outside world, I would also like to run the same VPN (PPTP) on my andriod.

    I can connect via VPN if I am using WiFi but when I try to connect over GPRS/Edge I can't get any connectivity. All web pages load with the standard "web page not available" and apps, eg. the market place, won't connect either.

    I would have thought that if it was a carrier issue (CMCC) I wouldn't be able to connect to the VPN in the first place. So is this a Andriod issue, a setup issue or a carrier issue? And can you actuality run a VPN over GPRS om Andriod?

    Nexus One

    Cheers for you help,
    DaveK.

    Your cell carrier is probably running a proxy firewall on 3G. China is notorious for that.

    You can run simple PPTP vpn on 3G. I've done it.
