How to change your connection protocol (Android)

The VirtualShield Android app supports both the TCP and UDP protocols. We suggest trying these various protocols if you are having issues connecting. This article will instruct you on how to change your protocol (Connection mode).


Connection Mode

  1. Open the VirtualShield Android app.

  2. Open the Settings panel by tapping the Cog/Gear shaped icon near the top-right of the app.

  3. Inside the settings panel, tap Advanced Settings.

  4. You should now see an option to choose your protocol (Connection mode).

  5. Select the various options (TCP, UDP) one at a time, then save your Settings and try to connect again.

  6. You can also try increasing the Timeout Duration option to 60 seconds, and see if that allows you to connect without issues.
