    VPN client for E90 communicator

    Hi,

    I was looking for a version of the Nokia VPN client for the E90 communicator but did not find it. Did I look at the wrong place or does it really non exist?
    In this case: was it announced? Is there an alternative?

    Many thanks,

    Matteo

    Nokia has a Mobile VPN client for S60 3rd Edition. Not sure how you can get it (if it is still available). Probably at least, if you buy a Nokia VPN gateway product:
    http://europe.nokia.com/A4153110

    Try calling the contact numbers listed on that page.

    Configuring the VPN client sw (if/once you find it) requires a Nokia Security Service Manager server product, too. Unless you try to create the policy file manually as in this thread:

    Re: VPN client for E90 communicator

    Dear Petrib,

    on http://europe.nokia.com/A4153110 they state that the client is

    is supported on a range of devices including Nokia 9300, Nokia 9300i and Nokia 9500 Communicator which are all S80 devices.

    On the software download page of these phone the VPN client is listed and can be donwloaded. I am puzzled by the fact that no S60 phone is listed.

    Thanks for the policy creation link, I also found information on http://pipip.de/index.php?section=other&sub=nokia_vpn which summarized the policy generation and signing.

    In the same thread there is a reference to a document in German which describes the procedure:

    http://pipip.de/index.php?section=other&sub=nokia_vpn

    No they state that the documentatio is for "Symbian S60 Smartphones", i.e., the E90 should be OK

    At the end of the document they write:

    Einrichten des VPN-Zugangspunkts

    * Menü / System / Einstellungen / Verbindung / VPN / VPN-Zugangspunkt
    * Optionen -> neuer Zugangspunkt...


    But on my E90, in the settings/connections menu I have no VPN entry ...

    Matteo

    Thanks,

    Matteo

    You'd have to install an S60 3rd Edition or S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 version of the Nokia Mobile VPN (mVPN) client. If it is not on the VPN (or other) Nokia web pages, you have the contact info there; call one or the other of the Nokia offices listed there and ask.

    Thanks again petrib,

    I tried to contact my local support (Switerland) where they had no clue (nothing new here :-) and they referred me to mobile.business.emea@nokia.com. Asked them, no answer...

    I'll trying again, maybe by phone :-)

    Thank you very much.

    I just managed to speak with Nokia business support: they have no release plan (no schedule, no estimate) for the mVPN client on S60v3.

    I really have no comment...
