    Does anyone know, if I configure my passport to connect all services through a VPN, if the WiFi Hotspot clients will also connect though that VPN? I believe, if I remember correctly on android, the Hotspot is automatically disabled when phone is connected to VPN.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes they will. You can even configure which hot spots to start up the VPN when connecting. Very handy if you want to use VPN for open Wi-Fi but not for work or home.

    I think that what he means is that if you connect to a VPN to show as a different ip location, if you can share your phone's connection(create Hotspot) and have those other devices that would be connected to your phone also show up as connecting from the VPN's ip.

    Dunno about wifi hotspot but if you go through bluetooth tethering the client will not use your phone's VPN. It'll go straight through the carrier. Need to connect the client to the vpn separately.
