i think many of you know the problem with android 2.x phones: they can’t connect to pptp vpn servers which have encryption enabled.
You get the error:
E/pppd ( 6070): unrecognized option ‚+mppe‘
But since yesterday this problem is solved 🙂 I had a similar idea for a while now but didn’t have the time to try it. As the error message states „pppd“ is missing the +mppe feature. So, why not just compile it WITH the mppe feature and replace the original binary. And guess what: a guy „qvr“ at Alldroid (http://alldroid.org/threads/15944-VPN-PPTP-modules-needed) just did exactly that. And now guess again: IT’S WORKING JUST FINE 🙂
Now i got vpn working at my university 🙂 Thank you so much qvr!
Just go the alldroid posting and follow the link to his binaries. I just backed up the original files and replaced them with qvr’s. Everything with the Root-Explorer (of course, you need root to do that!).
