    Does any knowhow to get vpn with jailbreak? or if it is even possible?

    I would think so since the iphone apps can be copied over. But I am not enough of a 1337 haxor to figure it out myself.

    Any help?

    Check in Settings General Network - you should find VPN options now. PPTP VPN connects in most cases, but as on the iPhone it seems rather buggy and not very useful.

    Dunno if someone will write a VPN standalone app though, or perhaps port OpenVPN...

    Copying one of the iPhone apps to the touch enables VPN. It's probably Mail. Why it does this and how to enable it without copying Mail, I can't say. If you do copy the iPhone apps, you'll find a new network settings entry under the general preferences. The VPN settings are in there.

    It's amazing how much Apple left on the touch. All they did was hide it. Poorly.
