Any resolve on this issue?  I just purchased this phone and now feel like I made a big mistake.  I travel 5 days out of the week and provide remote diagnostics services to more than 30 remote sites, all of which are using a PPTP VPN setup. 


I just upgraded from my Galaxy 6 Edge and was so far impressed with the new Galaxy 9, UNTILL THIS! 


Hopefully Samsung will get this fixed ASAP!   I cannot keep this phone if they don't.

at the moment, there is no solution.

The only solution is a patch and samsung doesn't care about it. It's really ridiculous
