Your FoxyProxy accounts come with both proxy and VPN service.

These instructions explain how to connect to your VPN accounts using a method called IPSec. This is the preferred means to connect to your VPN account. If it does not work, try connecting using PPTP or OpenVPN.

These instructions are for Android 4. They also work with other versions, but the screens are a little different.

1. Click the Applications Menu button then click Settings
