Default Dd-wrt VPN on stock 4.4.2

I'm running a full stock N5 and trying to tunnel to my VPN with no luck. Have other tried this setup. It worked with my SGS2 phone.

No one has tried VPN with their device?

What type of VPN? I'm using PPTP to my cisco router - works fine. I'm not using the cisco VPN client - just the native Android client

Same thing. Pptp. Just tried the client in the settings.

My concern was maybe because I'm not rooted that there is a similar flag restricting this connection just like the flag restricting tethering in the database file.

As I said these same settings worked on my old SGS2

I am rooted, but I don't think that should cause a connection problem. (I didn't have to change any setting to get it to work).
What problem are you facing?

It just doesn't connect. It doesn't give any exception or error which makes it hard to diagnose.

In the past I've had issues with VPN. They seem to get resolved depending in android versions. Meaning at one point it didn't work on say 4.0 but then was resolved with 4.1.

So now I have been unable to setup PPTP as well as OpenVPN on my N5 stock. Has anyone with a stock unrooted
N5 got either of these working on the tmo $30 plan?

After trying unsuccessfully to use OpenVPN, I got PureVPN and never looked back. It's fast, connects immediately every time, and only costs 50 bucks a year.

For as frequent as I used it PPTP worked just fine. I don't get if this limitation is from the N5 or from the service. It is hard to compare since my last device worked was a S2 on sprint.

I have problem with VPN, but not from stock.

I have S4 with 4.4.2 and I can connect to PPTP VPN on my DD-WRT, but it have packet loss, some apps do not work, and after few minutes it stops working with 100% packet loss, while still showing as connected to VPN.

It is possibly due to reported 4.4.2 bug where VPN does not take correct max packet size.
