Default VPN and Tethering not working on rooted device, will custom ROM fix that?

I came from a GS4 where I used Private Internet Access VPN and WiFi Tether Router. On the Note both services connect but do not route any traffic, my thinking its related to knox. Would a custom ROM fix that? At this point I have to either trip the counter or take this thing back for an iPhone 5S before the jailbreak is patched.

***FIXED
All that needed to be done is to have this setting changed, I can use WiFi tether along with VPN running at the same time so I never hit my hotspot limit because Tmo cant tell if the traffic is from a phone or other device.

To change your APN, simply navigate to Settings > More > Mobile networks > Access Point Names. Select your T-Mobile APN, and scroll to APN protocol. Change this to IPv4, and then save your APN.

I have been having issues with the same vpn too. How are you getting yours to connect? I am running Jedi and I can't even get it to connect to the vpn. I tried cm11 too and same thing. I have changed my apn from ipv6 to ipv4 but everything else is whatever came with jedi and cm and stock. On my Nexus 5 I can use it just fine with tmo... so unsure what the issue is.

I'm just using the app from the playstore with the default settings. But I did install a custom ROM, Darthstalker version 6 and it still does not work.

Now the counter shows as tripped whenever the phone is restarted, I hope tmo will take it back because I'm just going to try to trade this for a 5S.

Weird... I have tried this with no luck. I'll try again. Did you make sure you were not connected to a wifi network? Mine works when connected to wifi but from the cell connection it doesn't.

Are you using Fabios WiFi router? If so make sure to check his configuration page for the device. Yes I am not on WiFi, just came back from a 2 hour drive while my friend was tethered to my phone on his iPad.
