Earlier before now, we had stated that MTN BIS plan works on android using OPEN VPN Application. We even shared a detailed tutorial showing you how to configure it alongside the config files required.

However, for some time now, OpenVPN takes longer time to connect and when it finally does, it easily disconnects.

It is owing to this fact, i have decided to share with you, how to use MTN BIS on android and PC using Simple Server software.

This isn’t new. It has actually been ongoing for a very long time now. I had to try it again yesterday in-other to fully confirm before posting here because all these while, i have been feeling comfortable with the use of Glo Bis on my bb10 phone which i share to my android and computer.

Without much talks, let me guide you on how to use MTN BIS on android and computer using simple server. I will start off with the mobile users and that is the android devices.

Listen Port : 8080

  1. Hello my fellow technal friends. I just have a question, can these technics work in other countries but using the same network provider? Eg. I’m in zambia nd there is mtn/airtel too,so instead puting “mtnNG” I put “mtnzm”, then I add our ip address that we have for mtn further I have noticed we have the same port# 8080. Can it work too.for more of these tricks kindly email me: [email protected] thanks fellow tech crack head

  8. GOOD DAY BRO,

    I WAS SEARCHING FOR A SOFTWARE THAT CAN ENABLE MY MACBOOK BROWSE WITH
    THE MTN CHEAT AND I STUMBLED UPTON YOUR POST.

    I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IF YOU CAN SEND ME THE CONFIG AND THE
    PROGRAM FOR THE MTN BROWSING CHEAT MAC VERSION.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE,
    SMART

  9. Thanks Mr. Hendrix, I would love to get the tweak/cheat that will enable the openvpn, simple server or pd-proxy to work with bis on my android phone. I appreciate.

  10. Help!
    I don’t know if it’s only me or someone is experiencing the same.
    The simple server on my android doesn’t stay connected as I surf, I always have to reconnect it. I don’t if it’s my device, the network or the settings.

  11. So i found a way of making this BIS thingy work with simple server and x-T181 portable proxy together with openvpn thereby creating a tap 32 virtual network adapter.

    what this means is, you can share the network via connectify, mhotspot or any other virtual hotspot app.

    Also, it powers the whole system system without using proxy. what this means is, you dont have to change your browser or 1dm proxy to 127.0.0.1:8080.

    And it is soooo fast! and goes beyond the 5GB fair useage.

    i use it to watch live matches using Kodi, Download ps3 games on download.ir, 1070p movies on downloado.ir, utorrent, i even play multiplayer games on ps3 too.

    unfortunately, i have only tried it with BBMIDID for N100 and BBMLITED for N70. i dont have N1000 to lose.
