@darylgawn

To elaborate on what saltyNZ said, 2deg on the default "internet" APN no longer give out public IP addresses, instead you get a private IP in the 100.x.x.x range and they do NAT to translate that to a real IP address.
This will very likely be the cause of your VPN breakage.
You could use the "direct" APN which would give you a real IP address, but it will also not be firewalled so you could potentially be billed for data you didn't initiate.

I'd really like to see 2d offer a compromise here. Maybe paymonthly users get a real IP and prepay get NAT? Or another APN we can use. NAT is a pain.

Our systems are engineered to minimise the amount of provisioning required. We've got it down to HLR and IN only. This is one of the reasons we can do things like instant online postpay signup.

A scheme such as you are suggesting is a very big architectural change with non-trivial provisioning integration, so it's unlikely anything like that will happen.

hi Publius

thanks for that info, how do i use the "direct" APN? 

i know how to change the apn settings on a s3 just need to know what i need to change them to

also have a 2degrees mobile data stick couldnt see anywhere obvious where to change it on the software

s3 is priorirty for me can work around the data stick not connecting, 

cheers

Daryl

Just change the apn name from internet to direct. At least that is how I understand it.
