    Hello,
    i´m considering to buy an IpoT, but i´ve heard that there is no VPN on it.
    I need VPN for the Wifi connection at university
    is there a chance VPN is added when the IpoT is Jailbroken?
    thats to only thing why i haven´t bought one yet...

    sorry for my bad english, im from germany

    I would suggest that, unless you need/want a very cool portable music device also, you don't buy one assuming or wishing that this functionality will be provided as part of a hack, which people are hoping is made public soon.

    Your university should have a policy for connecting wireless handheld devices. I just had to send my MAC addr. to the IT department, and I'm up and running. Ask them about it (I sent a e-mail before I bought mine).

    ok,
    i found something called webvpn for my university (webvpn.rz.uni-augsburg.de)
    how likely is this going to work on an ipod touch?

    dont know what i was thinking, this would only be able to be linked too from on your campus, so you will have to find someone there to test it for you.

    sorry......

    no, you can reach the site from everywhere, even if you´re not on the campus.
    but it was the wrong link:
    https://webvpn2.rz.uni-augsburg.de/webvpn.html
    i tried it on the campus (with my notebook )this afternoon and i tried it now back home. it worked, but a popup windows occurs:
    "The server´s certificate chain is incomplete, and the signers are not registered"
    (accept)(cancel)
    when you klick accept you get to the webvpn login-inerface, even if you´re not on the campus.

    my question now: is the ipot capable of these certificates...
    could you please try that?
    thanks
    Flo
