I have the same problem.

A vpn that was working fine before the update now wont work. It looks like the session is up for about a minute, and then closed by a TermReq from the N1 end but the N1 never completes the setup to start with.

Ok,

I think I have a solution to this.

Code:
Select Code
adb remount
adb shell chmod 755 /etc/ppp/ip-up-vpn
then try and reconnect

My original VPN configurations did not work after the upgrade. I created new VPN entries and deleted the old ones. The new entries appears to be working fine so far.

Thanks but still having the same issue. it will connect, stay connect for a minute or so and then the network connectivity will be gone (the VPN icon will show that VPN is still connected but in reality the connection died).
This has also been the case in the original phone firmware (prior to the upgrade).

Someone on Modaco did similar but with the follwing line:-

adb shell chmod 777 /etc/ppp/ip-up-vpn


I've lost the ability to connect via adb to mine from my mac for some reason, working on that !

EDIT : Just noticed you had this problem pre-upgrade. This fix is not going to resolve that. Back to VPN settings / compatability.

This indeed solved the problem of not being able to connect. thank you.
It did not however solved the issue where the VPN connection stops forwarding traffic after 1-2 minutes (without actually disconnecting).
It seems to randomly happen, more when connecting to the VPN server over wifi.
I checked the logs and could not find anything.
Anyone has any idea why is this happening? this VPN servers works well on my laptop and iPhone.
