We recently switched from Windows phones to Android phones, I had the windows phone's VPN successfully working thru Softether, but have not been able to get Android to work with Softether.

I followed the directions Softether had on it's web site which said to use L2TP/IPSec PSK. Is there a known problem between Softether and the 8.1 version of Android ?

My purpose is to have remote access to my security camera feed thru my data connection when away from home, the camera is viewable thru my home WIFI connection on my Android phone, but they recommend going thru a VPN for remote access using a data connection, they also say to not use port forwarding as it is a security risk, I did not have to use port forwarding on my windows phone.
