At this time I don't have one type of VPN set in mind. I'm trying to find the client and then I will build the server for it.

So if anyone knows of a vpn client for the blackberry that would be great.

I need to be able to access some secure web pages that I use befind the firewall from my blackberry. I have the 8310 with ATT for right now. I'm going to be switching over to verizon later this year.

Do you have a blackberry enterprise server? If so, then you don't need a VPN client on the device as the BES provides encrypted data transport to internal servers.

No blackberry enterprise server.
