How to usb-tether VPN from Android to PC

Posted by David Khoirul
My Android phone, Cross A7#, is a year old now. Last year, in Ramadhan month, I bought this 4-inch Chinese smartphone in Surabaya with my best friends Arul and Bio Ahmed. Cross A7# has helped me browse the internet not only from mobile device but also from Chrome and Firefox in PC.

When you don’t have a modem like me, using your android phone as an online tool is the only solution.

To turn your phone to be a modem, you simply click USB tether option under Settings > More > Tethering and Portable Hotspot. This trick, however, doesn’t work if you are using a VPN connection from certain apps such as Psiphon, DroidVPN and TroidVPN. I understand that in Indonesia, these free tunneling applications are very popular, especially among cellular network phreakers.

If you are one of those people who utilize VPN connections and want to transmit it to your Windows or Mac computer, then here’s the trick: Download PdaNet.

Simple installation steps

  1. Grab the Android version of PdaNet from PlayStore
  2. Install to your phone
  3. Download the PC version here
  4. And install to your computer

Connecting PdaNet to your computer


  1. Before you do anything with the PdaNet softwares, make sure you have enabled debug mode on your Android device.
  2. Turn on your VPN apps until it is connected, usually with a key symbol in the status bar.
  3. Open PdaNet in Android phone and check “Activate USB Tether” and wait till it’s ready. See the a screeshot below:

  7. Done.

Congratulations! Your Android phone now shares its VPN connection with your computer.
