    I have a need to hide the traffic I send when traveling outside the US. Several countries I frequent block access to certain sites and types of traffic. I was planning to do this using the VPN features built-in to the iPhone. My question is does this hide all traffic including web browsing, video streaming and UDP/tcp protocols?

    Theoretically yes.

    Except all tcp/udp should get routed via VPN.

    Yes, its absolutely great! Sound quite enthusiastic, but when I went to China, or even when my carrier blocked certain content. VPN allowed me to access youtube, and my IP address completely changed. So it works exactly as it should.

    So does the L2TP and IPSec tunnels do that automatically? I'm assuming checking the send all traffic on the PPTP confit does that. I can't have traffic not sent as my connection could be cut off.
