    PaladinAndrei , Apr 29, 2020 :

    My setup is: VPN client on a laptop, conecting to the net through hotspot on Oneplus 8. The VPN client is just on the laptop, not on the phone.

    I can make a hotspot on my OP8, i can connect my laptop to the internet through it with no problems.

    I can use the VPN on my laptop when connected with USB tethering on the same OP8 with no problems. So not a problem from the carrier.
    (Also no problems on a separate wireless router)

    But when i conect to the hotspot, the VPN client stalls at "bringing up tunnel".

    VPN through hotspot worked fine on my old Oneplus 5T. So it might be an Android 10 problem, the 5T had 9.

    Reset WiFi, mobile & Bluetooth worked.
    No idea why that was necessary, since the phone was brand new.
    Maybe lock the thread and keep it in case anyone else runs into the same problem.

    Thank you.

    The problem has reappeared suddenly.

    There were no changes in the VPN configuration, no updates or changes on the laptop or on the phone.
    Today morning vpn over hotspot worked. Stopped the hotspot for about an hour, after reconnecting the laptop the VPN would not work.

    The vpn works on USB tether.

    A WiFi, mobile & Bluetooth reset did not help this time.

    I submitted a bug report through the community app, with logs.

    I have the same problem. I want to connect my notebook via the hotspot of the OP8 Pro to my Office.

    Would be happy if someone could help me.
