Speaking of tethering I know there has been a lot of discussion on pricing but I was told we would have to have a $74 data plan to use this feature... My colleague with a Verizon device doesn't have to pay anything extra :(
Laptop configured with Software VPN (TheGreenBow) connects correctly to work when connected either through ethernet or modem or Verizon samsung phone as tethered modem, however, when connected with BlackBerry as modem, even though VPN says it opened tunnel OK, can not access work.
TheGreenBow claims that TMO must be blocking port 4500 and/or filtering certain packets. TMO says that the data-plan I have needs to be upgraded to the 'internet2' plan to get that functionality.
Can anyone confirm, or at least explain what is internet2 plan?
I have a blackberry 8700, with Cingulars Tethered modem data plan. This does work with my Cisco VPN client but does NOT work with my Microsoft VPN client. I have talked to Cingular about this and they stated that a blackberry will NOT work with a microsoft VPN. They advised me that this is a blackberry issue that they are aware of but they dont have a fix for it. I requested there KB articale on this to pass to my salesman and they told me their internal KB article is kb65497 that states this issue. My Miscrosoft VPN works with all differnet Internet connections except my tetherd blackberry. Does anybody have the same config (Cingular, MIcrosoft VPn and Blackberry 8700 tethered) that they have working?
We've done fairly extensive testing, and have noticed something strange...
Both the Cisco VPN client, as well as SSL VPN work fine tethered... with one caveat: Everything works fine as long as the tunnel is terminated on a PIX or ASA. For some reason while tethered, we can't get a client VPN termination on a Cisco 3000 VPN Concentrator to establish a tunnel.
