Trying to connect to VPN over mobile hotspot has caused issues with new phone.

Hello,

 

I recently upgraded from the Samsung S7 to the Sanmsug S9, and since then I have not been able to connect to my work VPN on my laptop over either mobile hotspot or USB tether. With the S7 I could just put on my hotspot and it would work right away.

Since the VPN is working through other WIFI locations the blame seems to fall on either the phone or the mobile network configuration. 

Is there any way to fix this as it is a work phone on a business account and I need access to the work VPN when not in the office.

 

Thanks,

Gary

Hi

 

Did you get this resolved as I am having exactly the same problem, it worked fine on the S7 but now the S9 wont connect at all??

Hi Mark,

 

 

If possible, could you confirm the list of the APNs visible to you on both your S7 & S9 please?

 

Thanks,

Ashling

Re: Trying to connect to VPN over mobile hotspot has caused issues with new phone.

I connect to the hotspot then use the VPN on my PC as opposed to using the VPN on my phone.

So my phone can use a VPN (PIA) to hide my IP when browsing on my phone..
If I use my VPN on my phone and then turn on my hotspot my PC doesn't use the VPN for some reason.
But if I connect to the hotpost on the phone and turn on the VPN on my PC then it uses the VPN correctly.

Hope this makes sense. I've an S9.
