I'm losing VPN connection over 3G iPhone signal on Train

HI,

I travel from Manchester to London on a train and find that my VPN connection drops out when i connect with my iPhone on 3G connection using wifi.

The VPN is a PPTP on WIndows 2003 server and using WIndows 7 internal client to connect.

I find that when the connection drops i have to reboot the phone and whole laptop to gain access again.

Is there any better way of connecting reliably to the VPN server?

I've had similar problems when driving for long distances.

Eventually, your phone travels out of the area where its IP address is valid; and it isn't smart enough to negotiate a new IP address.

On my (android) phone, I can usually fix the problem by disabling data services and then re-enabling.  


Your VPN will still drop, and need to be reconnected, due the your IP address changing.
