This article will tell you, step-by-step, how to get a VPN on your Samsung Galaxy Ace. You’ll learn how to install OpenVPN on the device, as well as configure it to your liking.
Step 1: Ensure You Have All Necessary Permissions
Before you begin, you need to make sure that you have all the necessary permissions for this process. On some devices this may involve turning on a function called ‘companion screen’. This is a secondary display that is used for accessing certain functions on the device. If your device does not have a companion screen you will need to root it and use an app such as Root Explorer to allow you to install custom firmware.
Once you have enabled the ‘companion screen’ function, you can access the settings page and check that ‘companion screen’ is enabled. If it is not, you will need to reboot the device and retry the step. If you are still experiencing issues, try contacting the manufacturer of the device for support.
Step 2: Install OpenVPN On Your Samsung Galaxy Ace
Now that you have enabled the ‘companion screen’ function on your device, you can install OpenVPN. To do this, download the OpenVPN app from the Google Play Store and install it on your phone. Then, from the main menu, click on the three dots in the top right corner and choose ‘settings’. This will then take you to the app’s settings screen. On this screen, you will see a green ‘+’ icon at the top left corner. This is where you can enter the credentials for the VPN you have installed. If you have more than one VPN app installed on the device, you will need to specify which one you want to use.
Once you have entered the credentials for the VPN you want to use, press the green ‘+’ icon to start the setup process. This will then take you to the app’s main screen, where you can connect to your VPN server. If you are on a public Wi-Fi network while using this VPN, your security may be compromised. Make sure that you only login to public Wi-Fi using a VPN, and never use a public Wi-Fi network to login to your email account, bank accounts, or other important personal information.
Step 3: Configure VPN For Your Samsung Galaxy Ace
Once you have connected to your VPN, you can now configure it on your Samsung Galaxy Ace. To do this, open the VPN app and choose ‘settings’. On the app’s main screen, you will see a menu on the far left side of the screen with five options. Choose the first option, ‘general’, and then press the menu button on the app’s main screen. This will bring up a screen where you can configure the VPN.
On this screen, you can choose various options such as the VPN server, login credentials, and the like. Choose ‘OpenVPN’ from the list of protocols available and press the options button next to it. The connection will then be established and you can start using the VPN app.
To get a VPN without any delays, set the ‘Auto connect’ option to ‘On’ and then enter your email address and a password. Verify the password is correct and then tap the ‘connect’ button on the upper right corner of the screen. You will now be connected to the VPN and can use all the networking functions on the device.
Step 4: Test VPN Connectivity
After you have installed and configured your Samsung Galaxy Ace to use the VPN, you can now test its connectivity. To do this, open the VPN app and choose ‘settings’. On the screen that pops up, choose the IP address of a server (in this case, 22.214.171.124), as this will be the IP address of your VPN server. To check the server’s authenticity, visit http://ip.address/index.php. If the IP address of the server you have entered does not exist, it is not a trusted VPN server.
If you are connecting to a server that is located in the EU, you may need to switch to a different DNS server in order to access blocked websites.
Step 5: Enable DNS Proxy On Your Samsung Galaxy Ace
If you are using the VPN app on a carrier network that blocks all the content, you can use a tool called DNS Proxy to unblock content. To do this, open the VPN app and choose ‘settings’. On the screen that pops up, disable ‘Use a VPN gateway’ and then scroll to the bottom of the screen and choose ‘Proxy settings’.
From here you can enter a DNS server, 126.96.36.199, and press the ‘Save Settings’ button. Now, whenever you are connecting to a website that is blocked by your carrier, the VPN app will automatically route your request to the 188.8.131.52 DNS server instead. This will ensure that you can access all the content, wherever you may be traveling to.
More About VPNs
A VPN offers many benefits, including protecting your personal data while browsing the web and allowing you to unblock content on the device. However, you need to be careful when connecting to public Wi-Fi networks while using a VPN. Make sure that you are only connecting to public Wi-Fi networks using a VPN, otherwise your security may be compromised. Also, make sure that you never use a VPN to access your email account or other important personal information. Finally, if you use a free VPN, be sure to read the FAQs or contact the provider for support if you are having problems.
