Default PPTP VPN Help!!

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a Blackberry 8320, the main reason why i bought it is to go online using WiFI on our universities connection. The problem is that your school uses a PPTP VPN to connect to the WiFi and from some research it looks like our phone doesn't support PPTP. Both my friends who have a Palm and a Iphone can connect

Not supported, sorry. The VPN you see on the phone only works in conjunction with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, it is not a general use IPSec/PPTP VPN implementation for us to connect to our Cisco gear, etc. I've not found a 3rd party client yet either...
