help with Ipad VPN connection to SBS2008

Iíve a SBS 2008 server running since past couple of years. Recently bought an Apple iPad with which I want to create VPN connection over my SBS server. I tried doing it myself but the IPad VPN configuration screen is very confusing and am not able to get it done properly. Here are settings I have tried but it is not able to connect. Please check if it is correct:
  • Server: the ip address of the sbs network
  • Account: the username on the sbs network
  • Password: the password of the user on the sbs network
  • RSA: Off
  • Allow all traffic: No

Let me also tell you that I have successfully created and connected over VPN with my one of the windows workstation. Then whats the problem with iPad? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: help with Ipad VPN connection to SBS2008

I havenít used iPad personally so far but this is what I got from Google. Try out the following settings:
  • Server: mysbsserver.mydomain.com (SBS server's external IP or hostname)
  • Account: SBS login name
  • Password: SBS login password
  • RSA: Off
  • Send ALL traffic: oN

Hi Invinceble,
  • In the network settings Click on add vpn config
  • Unless you've bumped it up to L2TP or IPSec, you'll click on the PPTP tab
  • Server name = IP address of your server
  • Account = your user name
  • Password is your password
  • RSA off
  • Send all traffic on
  • To connect, click on
  • Now use an RDP app as you need
