    OK, I've searched for hours, and hours, and hours. I'm fairly good at this kind of stuff and I can't seem to find anything about running OpenVPN on the Droid. Yes, there are apps out there, but those are just front-ends.

    I cannot get the TUN/TAP module loaded because it doesn't exist. I saw this article which talks about an OpenVPN client connecting to Android, not an Android OpenVPN client: Linux + GNU = Humans Enabled: How to Tether your Verizon Droid (as an Internet modem) to Ubuntu GNU/Linux 9.10

    Anyone have an OpenVPN client running on their Droid and care to share how?

    I'm looking for a way to get OpenVPN to work as well. I've rooted the phone, but I'm reluctant to just try to install OpenVPN the way I'd do it on Linux without having a way to take an image backup of the phone first, just in case, and more importantly a way to boot the phone in some sort of recovery environment in order to restore said image if I screwed up and bricked it.

    Do you have a link for this. It was my understanding that a modified rom needed to be made with iptables inserted into it. So far to my knowledge this hasn't been done with Android 2.x
