This program opens a VPN connection through the bluetooth or USB channel and allows to navigate the internet without a WiFi or a built-in 3G module. It requires one of:
- Android smartphone/tablet with BlueDUN installed and running
- GPRS phone with Dial-Up Networking (DUN) support
- USB Stick with 3G or PSTN Modem

NO ROOTING NEEDED!!

IT DOESN'T WORK WITH ANDROID 4.4 DUE TO A VPN ISSUE (not yet solved with 4.4.2)!! PLEASE DON'T WRITE COMMENTS ABOUT THIS VERSION

This app works ONLY IF your device can manage VPN connections, in particular if the TUN.KO module is present. This module strictly depends on the hardware and must be compiled specifically for it. Some manufacturers prepare the firmware without re-compile that module or they even remove the file, so, it is not possible to open a VPN and not possible to use apps for the VPN (like OpenVPN or DroidVPN); please take a look to this link:

INSTALLATION:
1. Create the BT pairing between this client device (with BlueVPN+ installed) and the host device or simply connect the USB stick
2. Make sure you have a valid internet connection and the BT-DUN profile on host; if necessary install the BlueDUN app
3. In case of direct modem connection (no Android phones) or USB modem, insert in the setting panel the dial phone number, the access point and the other connection parameters
4. Some 3G stick modems require the "Modem compatibility" option enabled

Normal use:
1. Activate the DUN service / open the BlueDUN app on host device or plug the modem USB stick
2. Open the BlueVPN+ app on client, click the BT host name or the USB device name in the list
[ First time you open the connection, you need to confirm the security alert for VPN and USB interfaces (x2) ]
3. While BlueVPN+ is connected you can open a browser and navigate the internet through the bluetooth tethering or directly with USB modem

NOTE - there are applications that cannot retrieve network data from the VPN connection due to an Android bug (http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=33666), please refer to the following list:

WORK FINE:
- GMail (Only read messages, no synchronization)
- Email [ POP3 / IMAP ]
- Google+
- Facebook
- Twitter
- You Tube
- Google Earth
- Google Maps ( until version 6.14 )
- Google Play (browse only)
- Google Goggles
- Kindle app
- eBay app
- SoundHound
- Web Navigation (Chrome/Firefox/Dolphin...)

DON'T WORK:

The above list may change if the apps change their behaviour after an upgrade.

Tested with Android tablets:

- Acer Iconia Tab A500
- Samsung Tab 7 / 10.1 work fine with BT connection; for USB modems you need a OTG cable and a low power consumption USB stick or an additional powered USB hub or a battery pack like the tekkeon mp1800.

and external devices:
- Atlantis V.90/V.92 USB PSTN Modem

- Hauwei USB stick 3G Modems ( E172 , E1800 )

    Having purchased an android tablet, I wrongly assumed that it would pick up the WiFi signal from my Nokia N8's app, like my laptop can. Then I found this app, it is fantastic! Initially I was experiencing problems getting an internet connection from my ph
