    Re: Motorola Droid Full tether...

    I've noticed the "unsecured vpn" messages you noted as well... but unless I'm mistaken, which is unbelievably and entirely possible, I think it only means that the connection between your machine and the Droid-phone, using the USB cable (as opposed to wireless) is what's not being encrypted by the vpn, which doesn't really seem necessary anyway. The way I see it, the Droid being tethered via the USB cable is meant to be more of a web-traffic forwarding device than it is a traffic-encrypting device.

    So if you go to https://blahblah - you still get the encryption via your SSL connection witht that website... but if you FTP to someplace, than your FTP password is in cleartext just as it always is anyway.

    So this doesn't seem like it would be a big deal because it wouldn't be any more dangerous than putting your Droid-phone on an internal wired Ethernet network with your Ubuntu machine anyway.

    Is there a different explanation that I'm not taking into account here?

    Re: Motorola Droid Full tether...

    I followed the steps, when I run the script my phone acknowledges that it has connected to the host, but my computer won't actually use the connection. Its as if my computer does not acknowledge the connection is available (ie. zero traffic going through my phone).

    Any way to get Azilink to work via Bluetooth?

    Howdy,

    I am very new to this even though I have used Unbuntu for a number of years...

    I have tried to follow these instructions faithfully.

    After I cmod I try to run the "start_modem" and I get the following:

    tcd@tcd-laptop:~/azilink$ chmod 755 start_modem

    tcd@tcd-laptop:~/azilink$ dir
    azilink.apk azilink.ovpn resolv.conf start_modem
    tcd@tcd-laptop:~/azilink$ start_modem
    start_modem: command not found
    tcd@tcd-laptop:~/azilink$

    I have gone through the installation a couple of times so I get a few "already installed" msg's. However, this is a clean install of 9.10.

    All help GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Tom

    @RustyWyatt, from the looks of your output it appears that you are not prefixing the command with './'

    So instead of
    ~/azilink$ start_modem

    Try
    ~/azilink$./start_modem

    Cheers!

    Re: Motorola Droid Full tether...

    Don't know what to say, I was able to tether my Droid to Linux Mint without much problem (auto-detected, connected using network-manager) ^^;

    Am I just lucky? (Sorry to hijack thread ^^; )

    Howdy Shannon,

    Thanks Very Much for the quick reply!

    Thanks for your support and assistance!

    Great post! Super appreciate the help. Worked great. Couple of side notes. On Android when you download openvpn, it shows the market place app as (root). My phone is not rooted.

    Thanks again!

    @PanamaJack - It sounds like you are trying to download openvpn on your Android phone? If so, this is not necessary. OpenVPN gets installed on the computer that will use it to tether with the Android phone. Azilink is the only thing that gets installed on the phone.

    Yes, I have the same problem, too.
    Code:
    ifconfig
    shows the tun0 interface, but the network manager doesn't nor does it allow me to create it or connect to it.
