    I can't get free VPN to work

    I wish to use a free VPN to more securely use my A500 when banking etc.

    Looking at the web sites for free VPN for Android shows how but have got nothing to work so far. I am able to setup on the Tablet but when it tries to connect it always fails with the message "unable to connect to the network do you want to try again". I am following the instructions on a website! any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Well, you must try these configuration steps;
    Go to your Phone settings.
    Tap on Wireless Controls and then VPN Settings.
    Click ‘Add VPN’ and you are Half way through J
    Tap on “Add PPTP VPN”. Do not worry about others, we will let you know about the other protocols as well.
    Add your “VPN Name”. It can be your name, you can even name it “I Do not need VPN”
    Now the so-called difficult part arrives, entering the Server Name. Server Name can only be entered, if you have a VPN account, or you have setup your own VPN. If you do not have both, please do not try this, you will not get anything
    Server name is being provided by the VPN Provider, it will be like “usa.xyz.com”.
    You can enable the encryption here. (If VPN still does not work, try again after disabling it)
    Do not worry about DNS Search Domains until or unless you are planning to use Internal DNS Server, if yes enter them here.
    Save the Settings and You are all set with your New VPN Connection on your Android Honeycomb.

    Thanks for reponding leyoncheng......unfortunately this is exactly what I have been doing .... but it does not work. I have double checked for spelling mistakes and no problem found. Is it possible that my home router is some how blocking this, and if I try a public WIFI will it work ? I was just trying to do it at home so that I would be ready when I travelled.
