iPhone VPN

Hi,

I'm experiencing problems setting up a L2TP VPN on the iPhone. It seems to work fine on Wi-Fi but only intermittently over 3G. As it's working on Wi-Fi I'm assuming there's no problem with the iPhone, the VPN settings (server address, username, password, shared secret etc.), or the server terminating the VPN tunnel.

I was able to establish a VPN twice yesterday over 3g but not at all today (I have full strength 3g coverage & can browse).

I appreciate your help.

Mike

I've been reading other threads in the forum and it seems there are some issues with Tunneling on the Vodafone Live APN. Pepole have experienced problems with LogMeIn etc.but I haven't found an answer yet......

Re:iPhone VPN

FYI...just updated the VF Carrier File this morning. L2TP VPN is working :-). (Settings=> General=> About=> You will be prompted to update the carrier file.)
