Still can't connect to the VPN on your Android device?

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).
