In last post I wrote about my experience with VPN providers and now here is step by step guide how to set up VPN on your Android device.
First step is kinda different for all devices, you need to go to your Settings, its usually menu button than settings icon, but it can be in applications too, depends on Android version and on UI that your device is running, mine looks like this:
1. So first go to your Settings page:
2. Click on Wireless & Networks
3.Click on VPN settings
4.Click on Add VPN
5.Click on Add PPTP VPN or Add l2TP VPN depends on what type of VPN connection is your provider supporting.
6.Now enter Any name you want as a VPN name. Then enter the VPN server address as a Set VPN server and mark a Enable encryption. Save settings by pushing a Menu button and click on Save
7.Your VPN connection is now ready. Click on your new VPN connection Name that you entered (Any name in this case).
8.Enter your VPN Account details User name and Password. When you click on Connect, you are connecting to your VPN.
Congrats you just connected to your VPN service, so now go and test your connection.
