vpn on an ipad

Hi,

I am trying to connect an ipad to the vpn. the vpn is on the firewall by sonicwall. Has anyone here successfully connected an ipad to the sonicwall vpn? If so, what exactly did you do?

The Ipad is having me chose between L2TP, PPTP and IPSec, and then later on is asking me to chose between Off, Manual and Auto; with regard to a proxy.

You'll need to modify some settings on the sonicwall.  If you don't control the sonicwall, I don't think you can use a normal IPsec VPN.

IPSec VPN does not work with any Apple iDevices... That feature is for Cisco firewalls only..

The iPad can only connect via L2TP..  PPTP will work if you have it set to passthrough to something like a Windows Server running RRAS..

1  - First you need to change the WAN Group VPN encryption to AES-128..  
2 - Set a Pre-Shared Key
3 - Create a User, and assigned VPN Subnets
4 - Activate the L2TP server in the Sonicwall and assign the DHCP IP address ranges and DNS

on iPad
1 - Create a VPN using L2TP
2 - Put in IP Address of the WAN, Pre-Shared Key, User name and Password.

Everything should connect.
