I want to bypass bell's VPN restriction/filters on the VPN service, I was planning on piping the VPN connection (pptp) through an SSH tunnel. Is there a way to set this up on an android phone with connectbot installed so that it looks something like this.
All android data > VPN > SSH Tunnel > Home SSH Server > VPN Exit point.

I've always hoped for a way to take the power out of the hands of the phone companies as much as possible. Sadly they pretty much keep a choke hold on everything. So they seem to have normal pptp ports blocked I seem to be able to authenticate with my vpn service but when I attempt to load a page it seems to never load anything at all. So effectively vpn is a great way to turn off my data connection at this point... :(
Well let me know what you guys think I'd greatly appreciate a way to push vpn regardless of the will of the evil dark lord BellThulu...
Am I going to have to root my phone? I'm currently rocking the Bell version of the Samsung Galaxy S, also known as the Faux "Vibrant" also known as the I9000M. If that isn't confusing enough.
