What "Samsung TV Web Browser" or "Samsung TV Internet Browser software" exactly? I mean, for what model TV? It would be nice if you could provide a link to the manual on Internet.

The specific model is TV LED 46D7000.
There is a procedure here, but I'm not clear if it would let you set up a VPN connection.
The manual is here
