Hello friend,
I was looking for a way to share my VPN connection in MAC over wifi.
I have been looking for all over the internet for this to work.

I am connect to VPN using ETHERNET and sharing my VPN over wifi with my other devices by following below steps.
NOTE that this is ad-hoc connection so IF your device does not support ad-hoc connection than these guide will not work for you. As far as I know none of the Android device supports ad-hoc connection natively.

What you need..
1. MAC connected to internet using ETHERNET
2. Viscosity ( to connect VPN )
3. Waterroof (http://www.hanynet.com/waterroof/)

now just follow below step by step guide

Thats it now connect your devices to wifi network created in second image, and make changes in TCP/IP as shown below for Iphone and windows XP

for windows find the appropriate network adapter from network settings and do the TCP/IP changes as below.

NOTE- YOU CAN SEE FROM ABOVE IMAGES THAT I HAVE ENTERD THE SAME IP TWICE SO IT CREATED THE CONFLIT IN IP RESOLUTION SO YOU MUST USE DIFFERENT IP IN DIFFERENT DEVICES, IE BY CHANGING LAST TWO DIGIT FORM 11 TO SOMETHING ELSE.

I must thank all user who contributed in following threads

Hi frriction,

Thanks for your contribution of such a detailed guide! I'll move it to the Goodies section of the forums so more people can easily find it.

Cheers,
James
