    this tool works great. It would be nicer if:
    1) get rid of two notification spots
    2) auto restart after reboot

    Can connect to vpn, but no Internet after the connection. Nexus 7 1st gen and nexus 5... Same problem.. I can connect to the same VPN with my Mac, and no problem there. Worked like a charm before upgrade to 4.4.3 Thanks
