Introduction

This is the first release of an installable package to allow google android phones to connect to Cisco like VPN concentrators.
Details

The installing phone will require:

* Root user privileges on the phone.
* /dev/tun file
* Kernel with tun support (or tun module). (cyanogen should be good)
* A cisco, nortel or freeswan ipsec server to connect to.

How To
Installing this version

This is available in the android market as a free application. It should be called VPN Connections. (Not sure where it will be listed as yet).

The latest version of the application can also be downloaded from here and installed using adb.
Reporting bugs

Please inform us which ROM and version that you are using, if the /dev/tun exists, its permissions, and the output of logcat from a boot, also the version of this application that you are running.

If your ROM and version are already reported in the issue list, please comment in the thread as there has been some inconsistencies in reports.

Please be very careful when lodging a bug as it may contain company confidential information. Be sure to strip any secrets or passwords from the configuration files or debugging information.

Known issues

May need to load the tun module manually first.
Usernames can not contain the @ symbol.
Does not currently work with one time pass devices (Rsa keys).

I'm not trying to ping via DNS name, so dont be worred about that. I know the other hosts are up, reachable and pingable.

Tried TCP and ICMP connections.

A little more information.

When tcpdumping the connection, packets originating from the phone go out through the device.
When tcpdumping the connnection with packets originating from the internal network through the vpn, i can tell they make it to the rmnet0 device, but never make it to tun0 device.

Ok, so I have it working now ! Wahoo.

So.. going to tidy the code up, Clean up the shell script to be android specific (and set the DNS servers).

Great. Would be awesome if you could share your binaries. What about joining this project and submitting what you did?
