    This is something I've been wanting to get around to trying as well. Note that Mergic supports the PPTP protocol. If your company uses IPSEC, it won't work. There's a different VPN app (don't know the name, but if you do a search you should find it) that supports IPSEC.

    You don't mention what carrier you're using but with T-Mobile, you have to subscribe to their VPN service rather than standard GPRS internet. The reason for this is that with standard, you get a private IP address (10.x.x.x) and you're forced through a NAT device somewhere in Tmo's network. The PPTP protocol will not work in a NAT environment, as the information the NAT device needs to maintain multiple conversations is buried within the encrypted portion of the packet. The VPN service gives you a public IP address.

    I have some doubts about just how useful Palm / GPRS devices would be in administering Win2k boxes. You might consider a Pocket PC device, which supports pptp and Terminal Services out of the box.
