Activesync does work just like standard iPod's but this user was hoping to perform poweruser tasks (i.e. remote desktop and ssh sessions) over VPN. The main reason I push for standardizing on our Juniper devices is platform support. It beats all the other solutions as far as flexibility is concerned, For me, mobile device support has been a small issue I've ignored. Unfortunately mobile devices are growing in popularity, becoming more powerful, have faster connection speeds, and are generally to a point where they can be used in place of standard PC's. This is the trend I'm seeing and the iPad is the best example of this. I'm not a huge fan of the iPad product to be honest but I cant ignore the business need and fact they will become a key device in our computing environment along with other platforms such as the Android which is available with similar specs. Moreover, the iPad device ships with a Cisco VPN client along with PPTP and LT2P support. If Cisco can make a client for the iPad and see the obvious change in mobile computing devices shouldn't Juniper as well? Juniper please refocus some of the development efforts on mobile computing. I believe this will slowly become a significant computing platform in future mobile workforces. Thank you.
