    I go to George Washington University. The media is definitely sensationalizing their lack of support for the iPad. They use a Cisco VPN that must always have a program running in the background to maintain the connection, which the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch are all incapable of doing. It looks like the feature is coming with 4.0.

    So its not that they're specifically blocking the iPad, its just that their specific network solution requires multitasking.

    iPhoneOS has supported Cisco VPN since v2.0:

    IPSec services require a process to run in the background to renegotiate keys on a periodic basis. iPhoneOS has multitasking, it's just not for third-party applications.
