Question

windows mobile VPN client?

by liquidmike / January 14, 2013 3:41 AM PST

I need to establish VPN access to my company resources through n MC65 running Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro. We use Dell SonicWalls as firewalls and their clients do not support Mobile, only Droid and iOS. I've looked at the Mobile Device Manager but that is a little more than I'm interested or able to get running for just 1 device. Is there a windows mobile app that will allow this to happen? I'm also restricted to using cellular connection only as there is no wifi at the location of use. Any suggestions?

I only have 1 device to setup and don't want to really involve mobile device manager since it will involve additional servers that the company isn't interested in providing. What I need is a VPN client that I can use that will interact with the group vpn on the sonicwall.

If there is such, they will know about it.

Tipping my hand here a little. Years ago the office put out some Windows Mobile apps. (WM 4.x to 6.5)

When we looked at Windows Phone 7 and found some support missing MSFT said same.
