Default Is there a VPN version for Blackberry that works on 8300?

Can someone put me on the right track to find the VPN version for Berrys?

I haven't heard of a VPN client for Blackberry. Maybe the folks at Rove will have something you can use. Their mobile ssh client was a big hit with admin types.

No VPN that I know of. Likely because most people who'd need it are on a BES, and the connection puts you inside the network anyway.

The 8320 has a built-in VPN client.

Does not work if you do not have BES connected, been trying - even their docs state as much. Now *why* they would do that is beyond me, but as it stands it's WiFi oriented only VPN that is somehow connected to BES - it's useless as a "stand alone" type of client that I think we all want. *sigh*
