HotSpot PPTP VPN

New Member

Hi,

If I enable Hotspot of S10 and i connect my PC to HotSpot of S10, I can't connect to a PPTP VPN. There's some way to fix it. It worked right on the Galaxy S8.

Thanks M.

there has been the same issue on the S9 and no resolution yet that I have seen

This needs to be resolved ASAP. I have users that left Iphone because Apple stopped supporting PPTP tunneling and went to Samsung because I told them it would work only to find out that it won't. I have a Note 8 and it works fine. Doesn't make sense that the newest version of Android OS and newest edition of the galaxy series won't allow the connections.

I have the same issue on S10+. PPTP Vpn is not working over hotspot on this device.

Instead is working just fine on Galaxy S7.


A very unpleasant surprise. I cannot do my job using this new phone.

Everyone go to Samsung support live chat. Reference this chat web link. make sure you ask for a ticket number. 
I have reported this 3 times and every time support says this is the first report. With out a ticket number the problem does not exist.

Confirmed that this is also occurring on S10 and S10+ over here as well.

 

When using the hotspot of an S8 or a spare Huawei phone - no issues.

 

Chat support ran through the process where we booted the affected phone into Safe Mode (boot up with the Volume Down Button held down) - still encountered the same issue.

 

Was also advised to try turning PMF on via Configure Mobile Hotspot - still encountered the same issue. Note: did not have to turn this on for the other 2 working devices.

 

Currently have already logged a ticket with a valid Service Reference ID but have yet to get a response since then.
