    Hello,

    I have been trying to get VPN working on my iPad, but I keep getting a configuration error. I am copying the same config from my laptop, so I am pretty confident that it's not a configuration issue.

    Anyone have VPN working, specifically IPSec?

    Nevermind... it has to be the special characters in the secret key...

    I use StrongVPN.com per a friend's recommendation, and it was super simple to get going.

    Got the OpenVPN for my MiniMac and PPTP (sp?) for the iPad.

    They have reps stand-by on IM to help with any question...

    I don't have problems with L2TP, PPTP, or Cisco IPsec

    There is a bug with the VPN implementation, where it fails if you have special characters in the shared secret. We discovered this with the iPhone, and set up a special realm for it. I forgot all about it, since I stopped using it on the iPhone.

    I found that it was just too much work to get to a terminal and login on the iPhone. It was fun to do a few times, but there is no way that I could get any real work done. I am hoping that I can at least get a little done with the iPad.

    I have only used pptp and l2tp on the iPhone and iPad but I've never had problems with either.
