Can Windows Mobile 6 Pro use a Cisco VPN?

Does anyone know if the VPN client built into Windows Mobile 6 Professional can connect to a Cisco VPN? I'm just wondering before I upgrade my phone OS.

I dont think it will connect to the IPSEC VPN that Cisco support. At least when I tried on an IPAQ it did not work but that could always have been a network issue.

However the PIX/ASA firewall does support the PPTP type of VPN and that worked fine.

I guess what I meant was if the built-in VPN client works for IPSec VPNs....

It does but you need to configure it properly  (certs and shared keys)

Can you confirm this? Our ASA uses a preshared key and then AAA users. I have set it up on WM 5 before and it didn't work. I read many places that the WM 5 built-in VPN never works correctly.

I did. I just want to know if the built-in client in WM6 works correctly. I was simply citing my problems with WM5 and explaining our authentication method. Have you used WM6?

PugglewuggleAuthor Commented:
okay.... all I'm asking is "Does It Work?"

WM5 does not work.

I use IPSec with a PSK. that's all.

Thank you by the way.

Will do once the WM6 update comes out for my AT&T Treo 750!

They were supposed to have that out by the end of March! Slow buggers!

Hi everyone - just keeping you posted -- it doesn't work...

You have to have a 3rd party VPN client... no support for group authentication in WM6.

I wish Cisco would just make one... it's long overdue.
