My company runs SBS 2008 and we have an "all in one" Cisco 871W (router,vpn...). We use the Cisco device for our VPN needs.
A few of my employees are starting to get Iphones and of course are wanting to set up their iphone to get their email via activesync or IMAP. I'm a bit concerned about them logging onto our server in an airport or hotel via wifi.
I've seen that you can set up a VPN connection on the Iphone... Is this a practical solution to ensure a secure connection to our email server? Can the VPN connection be "always on" ...At least for wifi use? It would be great if I could set this up on the Iphone so it automatically connected to the VPN without any user input. (Im the only young guy in the office, the rest of the guys are pushing 75 so the simpler, the better.)
We use self-signed certs and I noticed that the Iphone was able to connect to our exchange server without installing the cert...That kind of suprised and scared me...
