Tablet 2 mobile broadband with VPN

Hi there,


 Loving the tablet 2 with my 3g mobile broadband so far.  One niggling problem is VPN via mobile broadband is not working.  It connects but then  disconnects the tunnel after 20 seconds or so.  Over WiFi the vpn works.  Even tethering with my mobile phone via WiFi works.  It looks like the mobile broadband driver blocks vpn tunnelling.  Does anyone else have this problem?

Re: Tablet 2 mobile broadband with VPN

This may sound stupid but if you want to run a VPN over mobile data (GPRS/3G) you need to enable adult content in the SIM account. The reason is that the networks search for certain words and other stuff in the data and since a VPN passes purely binary (random bytes) data it's only a matter of time before it breaks.
