After I unchecked the ssl box my emails attachments work fine. .pdf, word and excel all come in with no issues.
Just waiting for the signature to be fixed.
1 - worked (this was driving me nuts).
2 - I can live with if I have to
3 - I am just using Exchange 2007 out of the box - meeting requests come in as emails (maybe I can try to use the webmail client as a workaround)
4 - I hope you are correct - this is a primary function of a PDA
I have tried connectbot and a free RDP - with no luck. maybe there are some updates...
Just wanted to give an update in the event someone else is having the same issues, my problem with SSH and remote desktop is actually related to the PPTP VPN via verizon 3G. No problems when connected to wi-fi. This is a bit weird as my laptop using a vz card works fine - but the droid keeps dropping it's link - I only noticed this when on a vpn initially, but i have confirmed it is happening without the vpn link as well.
VZ's network is typically good, so I am hoping this is picked up in a FW update - I would think this is some kind of android issue.
Ok - I have been trying to work with support for over a week on this issue.
Verizon support was as helpful as the could be, they did give me the correct number for motorola support.
Unfortunately, Motorola support has really let me down. I was escalated on the 17th never called (should be called within 24 hours) - and after calling again on the 19th, never received a call back. I am going to give it one more shot today, or I am done with Motorola.
As for Remote Desktop, as a backup solution, look into downloading PDAnet and leverage tethering until a fix is in place for the native DROID VPN. You get the best of both worlds --a larger screen and machine which is superior to your phone for RDP and you still leverage your phone capabilities.
Tethering is not officially supported yet but it is certainly working at this time.
Thanks for the tip on PDANet - but that still requires me to lug around a laptop everywhere I go, and if I need that I will dump the dumb smartphone and just a get a cheapo dumb phone.
