Default TMO tethered and accessing a VPN?

Please Login to Remove!

I placed this in the 8100 section but its more of a general Q? sooo.....

I did a search on this and found a couple of anwser's following instructions I found on the forum I called and talked to tmo's blackberry support people and spoke to them and they told me with the blackberry it was not possible to access VPN acct while tethered to my lap-top if I wanted to get VPN I would have to get a windows based unit....I have seen other posting about being able to access there work VPN's has anyone using tmobile been able to do this??

I am able to access my company's VPN with my 8100 on TMo. It's just a web based login page. Different VPN's may have different results.

VPN while tethered with T-Mobile works fine for me too.

It could be a specific port that your VPN client needs bi-deirectional access to. This used to be an issue with the Air cards and some VPN clients.

Works fine for me, we use Cisco Systems VPN Client V4.6.02.0011.

I can access mine tethered via cable or bluetooth.
