Would like to use more than PPTD
I setup a RV220W (cisco) at my home. I can get PPTP to work fine. However I can not get another connection to work. For security reasons I do not want to use a public paid or free service. I have a pretty good home network so why not use it. I know that PPTP is not the best security but it does work and should keep the amateur at bay.

When I use PPTP it refuses to allow auto reconnect. That is really my biggest issue.

If anyone has this working with the 4.x.x android (I use a Samsung Tab 2 10.1 & a HTC 1 from at&t).

I have run out of options.

I don't recommend a free VPN app at all. Cause such providers are more likely to log your activities and serve contextual ads while you're connected. They're also more likely to use your usage habits to tailor future ads to you, have fewer exit locations, and weak commitments to privacy so if logging and privacy are important to you, you may want to avoid them.
As far as I remember purevpn has an android app that worked perfectly when I was in china.

No Way Free VPN Sucks
i am a victim of Hotspot shield, be honest with you guys it was really frustrating experience of my life. its comes with thousands of advertorial content as well low quality. connection error and dis connectivity is the biggest reason that people trying to find some other resource for it. from while now i'm using PIA VPN which is really really cheap VPN provider, that gives enormous speed, connectivity and usage. the best part is it will comes with smart DNS which is something out of the world. compatible with every device you are using with, android, iphone, PC whatever!

I always recommend people to use paid vpn . free vpns are insecure they can not protect you, paid vpn can secure your privacy. free vpn slow your speed, result is lack of bandwidth. Paid VPN providers invest on bandwidth and servers.

I was going to create thread on this. Glad I used search first. I have no problems paying for 1. I just have no clue which ones are worth the money. Any info/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My 2nd choice would be Private internet Access, which is cheap in pricing but has huge numbers of servers. The 1st choice will be Expressvpn which is not so cheap but it has huge number of servers and great support. still working with Netflix USA and it will also allow you to download torrents with the best speed.

If you ask me about android VPN, i would never recommend any free services, because it will pops out lots of ads which will slow down your Android device. Free version also comes with lots of restrictions in features which you can never avail. I would highly recommend Cyberghost for free VPN seekers, but it will comes with some flows:
  1. Connection will disconnect every 3 hours
  2. It will not allowed you to choose your desire location
  3. First time connectivity is really slow, like it will take about 3 for 4 mins to connect with difficult server location
For paid and unlimited anonymous connection i would highly recommend fastest VPN service for Android, it will give you the list of top 5 VPN service, which are completely compatible with Android Os, and it will also provide fastest and anonymous VPN connection. The best part is the apps of those provider are really lite and responsive.

Let me know your thoughts about it.

@Manokhan@Ritase thanks for the info. Went with PIA for starters.. A learning curve. Regardless, feel good about getting on program with everyone else. Windows laptop I can't get to download yet. Nexus 7 really struggling on downloads. I'm in condo complex with Direct TV, so we'll see. Again, appreciate your help.
