Android FAQs
How do I set the DNS on Android devices?

To change the DNS for a STATIC IP Network

STATIC IP addresses are not used over 3/4G Data networks. Please see below for the directions on how to set the DNS on a DHCP (99% of connections).

    1. Click on Settings in your applications screen
    2. Click on Wireless & networks option
    3. Click on Wi-Fi settings
    4. Click on the menu button for your phone
    5. Click on Advanced

    1. Click on the STATIC IP option
    2. Fill in your local network static IP details

this does not pertain to the WiTopia VPN services and is local to your network only

    1. Click on the down arrow for each DNS field and input a dns option

CLICK HERE for DNS Server Options for a list of locations to choose

  1. Click the menu button to bring up the save button
  2. Save

The DNS should now be set for this wifi network (only).

To change the DNS for a DHCP (99.99% of connections)

Google did not make this option available if you are using DHCP (most people are). You can see on their issue tracker that this is a known issue. If you are using a STATIC IP on your network though you can set the DNS on WIFI only. There is no ability to change the DNS for the cellular data network (without rooting, and hacking the phone which we do not support). If you have rooted your phone, there is a free application in the market that you can use to set the DNS for usage on wifi or 3/4G service. Please see CLICK HERE (WE CANNOT PROVIDE ANY SUPPORT OR SETUP ASSISTANCE WITH THIS APP OR ROOTING YOUR PHONE — USE AT YOUR OWN RISK)

How Do I Know My Android Is Connected?

You will know when you are connected as you will see a “KEY” symbol in the upper menubar. You can also check your notifications window to see that the vpn is connected.

Credential Storage Password Reset?

If you don’t remember your password or remember ever setting one up, then you can perform a reset of the credential storage password that will delete all secure certificates, related credentials, and reset the password. This process does not delete any data. Upon attempting to connect or editing the vpn you will be prompted to create a new unique password that contains at least 8 characters.

To reset the credential storage password, do the following:

    1. Press the home button to go to the home screen.

The home button is located along the bottom of your device. Its icon looks like a house.

    1. The steps to get to Settings on Android can differ by device. Try one or more of the following:

Press the menu button to bring up the mini-options screen.The menu button is located along the bottom of your device. Its icon is four stacked lines. Then press Settings.
Press the clock located in the system icon tray in the lower-right corner of your screen. This will bring up a menu. Press the clock again and then press Settings.

    1. Press Location & security.
    2. Press Clear Storage and Confirm.

Password will be reset and credential storage cleared of all contents.

Now when you try to connect it will prompt you for a credential password, create one that you will not forget as you may be asked for it again in the future after a reboot

Android PPTP Still Not Connecting?

Try turning encryption “off” and see if it connects. Not using encryption might provide access to blocked content, as well as privatize your IP address, but it still isn’t optimal for security, obviously. It would appear Android has a little way to go to best support PPTP VPNs. Note: The username/password you selected are case sensitive and need to be entered exactly as entered during registration: username@witopia (with no .net or .com on the end).
