We have a few partners in the company who want to VPN into the system using their IPad's.

I am wondering how this is done as I have not done it myself before.

they are using a Draytek Vigor 2820 Router, which hosts the VPN connections

I take it they want to VPN inand then RDP to servers or do you have a mac network?

Anyway.. on the iPad go into settings, then General, then Network, then scroll down to VPN and add you connection settings. Once this has been set up you can then use an RDP app like RDP lite to connect to servers etc. The draytek itself doesnt care what device connects to it as long as you enter the correct settings.

The ipad will do L2TP, PPTP, OR IPSEC VPN.

Is RDP the only VPN function or would there be a way to browse shared folders?
Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?
