I use Android's native PPTP VPN connection to manage computers at my office or at my home if I need to do something when I'm not physically present.. If my phone is connected to the VPN however, and I tether my internet connection to my tablet, I can't seem to get access unless I make a second VPN connection from my tablet.

Does anybody know how to share VPN access to tethered devices? I'm sure its possible, just not sure how to make it happen...

And why are you trying to do that?

I haven't tested vpn "sharing" , but it is simple to vpn with the tethered device to the vpn server. Wifi tether passes the vpn traffic fine.
I will poke around with it sometime.
