    I've been wanting to switch from the iPhone to the pre and was wondering if the pre already had support for VPN and an app for rdp/vnc.

    I know there is a VPN in the preware feed but it doesn't have a user-interface. I think this is needed and would like to ask if one of the developers would be willing to make a simple interface that allows us to specify the common parameters needed for a vpn.

    The best and easiest solution I have found for this, that works remarkably well, is getting the ClassicApp (PalmOS emulator), and then using EZ-Remote. You dont need anything special on the Windows side (well other than having XP Pro, Media Center, or Win7 pro, that supports rdp)

    This is one the the main things I HAD to have before commiting to even buy a pre.

    Where can I get the VPN client for classic and if I run this in classic can I use the regular webos mode through this VPN connection although it's in classic?

    Edit: just realized this is an rdp client not a VPN client.

    I would pay $50 for a vpn client.

    also, what is 'open vpn' in the preware catalog?

    it gives you phone vpn capabilities, but you have to use a terminal to use it. no shiny user interface.

    yah thats the one; do you have a quickie post on how to set it up? i figure that once it is set up it is pretty much good to go. whenever i am on wifi i will be connected to work.

    So I decided to try the pre out and I purchased it yesterday, I have been looking through preware and the only thing I can come up with is openvpn which required an openvpn server. I also tried VPNC but it only works with Cisco concentrators so I was unable to get it up and running. Any other clues on a VPN client or even a VPN client on Classic?
