I'm doing some preliminary testing of BlackBerry connectivity to SSL VPN using Pulse. There doesnt seem to be anything available for Playbook VPN access, though PlayBook security settings mention to SSL VPN. Any idea if/when a Pulse client will be released for BB PlayBook, or how Playbook can tie to SSL VPN (other than using a browser of course)?
The Pulse for Blackberry app is for the security function (Mobile Security Suite), you are correct.
You should be able to use IKEv2 to create the VPN tunnel for the Playbook to the IVE.
The admin guide outlines the requirements for configuring IKEv2 for clients to connect; I know of this working, but I do not have any specific config details
