    Hi Guy's new to the Forum and I am hoping to find some answers here? I am a WM convert who absolutely loves the Droid platform! But the real reason for having this phone is the ability to be able to VPN into my company network and access my BAS systems and make changes as needed through the phone. Now the vpn works perfect when I am on the wifi anywhere but when I try to use it through the 3g network it times out or simply drops connection?? Does anyone have a solution for this problem? I find it hard to believe that a phone as sophisticated as this is not capable of doing this task.
    Please Help.

    Wish I could help, I have been unable to make a VPN connection whether on WIFI or 3g. Our network group sees me hit the server all of my credentials are accepted but the phone says the server hangs up. The server says the phone disconnects.

    Now I'm nervous. Guess this is a fact then the Droid incredible does not support the Vpn client as it stated it did in the brochure that I read when I bought! Well I guess they can say that it does because it will work through the Wifi but most of the time for my use I will be out in the field with no Wifi........Very disappointed........

    Vpn android tether stopped

    I have 6 users using VPN's over Android until last week. Now they don't work. Incredibles and Droids, On 2.1 and 2.2.

    I have tested laptops without the vpn and they work.

    LET ME BE CLEAN, I'm not talking about the windows software vpn, I'm talking about in Android all programs, settings, wireless and connection, vpn, then pptp.

    I get an error thats new, the server disconnect check to make sure your vpn client isn't behind a firewall.

    This is a new problem.

    Sounds like it might be a different issue? I have no problem over the Wifi network it's the 3g that does not work regardless of the signal. The weird part of this is the our Vpn client never used ssl now I can not connect unless I am using SSl??? We do not use SSL??????? I am very,very confused about this thing? I have to believe that Verizon and Google are going to loose there corporate clientele unless they get there stuff together and fix this silly Bug. Heck my old WM touch phone worked better..............

    I have a Droid 1 and I can use VPN to access my work's network only when I am able to access wifi. I have not been able to use VPN through 3g. Sorry.

    Wow seems real strange that they (Verizon) advertised this device (The Droid INC.) could VPN into anyone's network at any time and it flat out can't. I actually contacted our corporate sales Rep. who himself admitted they are completely stumped but are working on the problem. I promptly told him that we would be gone shortly if this is not cleared up soon. Then I asked how much longer would the I-Phone be introduced and would it be 3g Vpn capable. He didn't have a clue......Number since this phone has so much more capability than my old WM phone yet it can't do what I need it to do.....Disappointing.

    Not sure if this helps, but I have been having issues again lately with this as well. I have a non-encrypted PPTP session with similar results as others in this thread. The weird thing is it was working well for over 9 months. I am wondering if this is related to the 2.2 update, or a change on VZ's network.

    I have not tested on wifi yet. I have the original DROID if it matters.

    Does anyone know if there are other VPN apps that work?

    I really don't think it has anything to do with the 2.2 software because My Dinc. came originally equipped with the 1rst version of Android. Honestly I believe that it is something that Verizon has done to limit the drag on there 3g network in order to stay in the same ballpark as the other carriers (speed wise). According to our IT Guru's it's very simple Verizon just has to stop blocking the port in question. All I know is my lowly Touch Pro WM device was able to do this function and the Mighty Droid Inc.with 2.2 can not!!
