    Hi, I see a VPN icon in the top bar of the minix metro launcher home screen. Does this Box come with a working VPN service or something? Where on this forum or the internet can I find some info on what this icon does and how setting up this VPN on my NEO U9-H works? Any recommendations?

    It just signifies if you have a VPN service turned on. I think it changes to green.
    You must subscribe to a VPN service and set it up in the VPN settings which you will find under Advanced Settings, More

    afaik it only turns green using the method you have described...

    it does not turn green when using a providers vpn app or openvpn
    ...which of course is probably what the majority do unfortunately rendering it a more or less a pointless and misleading icon
