Submission + - PPTP works on Android (google.com)

Belial6 writes: One of my ongoing complaints with Android has been that from very early on, it has included PPTP in the OS, but it never worked. Every time I got a new version of the OS, I would again try to connect to my DD-WRT router, and every time it would fail. I would search the internet for an answer, and from all of search results it appeared that PPTP VPN was just broken in Android. Worse yet, it looked like it was something that was never going to be fixed. It looks like I have the problem is that DNS breaks VPN on Android. I have now tested a Nexus 7, an HTC G2 and a Nexus One. They all work if I put in the IP address directly, and they all fail if I try to resolve the IP via DNS. Has anyone else tried this?
