Say you only want to route the traffic of a single application through a VPN.

(Because the application lacks proper encryption support or the remote service is only available on a cooperate network.)

Other stuff like web-browsing should go through the normal data connection.

How to configure this on a recent Android device (>= Android 4.0)?

Concrete motivation: Unfortunately, quite a few VoIP gateway providers do not provide encryption of data (voice and signaling) - thus using a VPN is necessary (at least when connected via WLAN). One provider ( even provides its own VPN (and no other SIP/RTP encryption methods).

Try using the older Hola Better Internet not Hola Free VPN it gives you the right to select the only apps for VPN services.

Can you clarify what these "Hola" apps are, link to the specific one you're recommending, and give instructions on how the user can use it to solve their problem? – TurboFool Jun 29 '15 at 23:51
