More iPhone Cisco VPN Feedback

Posted on Sep 30, 2008 in iPhone, Opinions

So now that I’m back in University, I’ve had a chance to use the iPhone’s Cisco VPN client more regularly on a daily basis.

So far it’s worked great: The VPN connection is established within a few seconds and all applications are able to access services through the VPN tunnel immediately. 

Browsing speed over wifi doesn’t seem to be impacted at all, as I’d already mentioned in my first look.

My only gripe? An on/off switch for your default VPN connection that’s accessible from the top Settings menu (similar to the current “Airplane Mode” toggle) would be useful for users who frequently need to access the VPN client.

  1. Hi, I agree about the lack of a toggle switch being a PITA. There are also OpenVPN implementations for the iphone which I find far easier to configure than the cisco client, unless of course you are forced to use Cisco. Im currently using the guizmovpn client to connect to the ivpn.net VPN service and it works really well.
