    I wish they would add IPSec and I wish Leopard would come with it as well.

    I am not sure but I think it should work. And VPN settings are not changed automatically.

    You need to find out what VPN protocol your campus uses. The one I work at uses PPTP so I can use it with my iPhone. The iPhone currently supports L2TP and PPTP, no IPSec.

    Looking at the settings I do notice the option for an "RSA SecurID" that was not there before (I don't think).

    after trying the settings L2TP and putting down all the info but the "secret" option i hit connect and the message pops up and says "The IPSec Shared Secret is missing. Please verify your settings and try again."

    does that mean that the iPhone now supports some form of IPSec???

    Resolved: "The IPSec Shared Secret is missing"

    I just resolved this issue.

    I manage the VPN at work and was trying to connect via ipad then I got the message
    "The IPSec Shared Secret is missing. Please verify your settings and try again."

    If your environment is a Microsoft VPN (Routing and Remote Access) or using PPTP...

    The solution is:
    1. Delete existing VPN that didn't work.
    2. Create new VPN and do NOT add anything on the L2TP tab.
    3. Click on the PPTP Tab and enter the information here - your need description, server, account - I leave passwrod to Ask Every time.
    4. All other settings - leave the defaults.

    This worked for me.
