VpnTether requires a rooted device with iptables and ip modules. Install BusyBox if your device doesn't have the modules.
VpnTether enables sharing of VPN connections to tethered clients when you create a portable hot spot. This application works with both USB and Wi-Fi tethering.
The permissions are needed to perform network related tasks in order to successfully share a VPN connection with tethered clients.
I made this app to for myself seeing as how other apps that do the same simple task of executing some shell commands have to be bought and some are full of annoying ads.
The application does not collect any sort of data.
Tested only on Note 4. Send bug reports my email.
