Mobile VPN

Select Menu > Ctrl. panel > Settings and Connection > VPN.

The Nokia mobile virtual private network (VPN) client creates a secure connection to compatible corporate intranet and services, such as e-mail. Your device connects from a mobile network, through the internet, to a corporate VPN gateway that acts as a front door to the compatible corporate network. The VPN client uses IP Security (IPSec) technology. IPSec is a framework of open standards for supporting the secure exchange of data over IP networks.

VPN policies define the method used by the VPN client and a VPN gateway to authenticate each other, and the encryption algorithms that they use to help protect the confidentiality of data. For a VPN policy, contact your company's IT department.

To install and configure the VPN client, certificates, and policies, contact the IT administrator of your organisation.

Manage VPN

Select from the following:

VPN policies - Install, view, and update VPN policies.

VPN policy servers - Edit the connection settings of VPN policy servers from which you can install and update VPN policies. A policy server refers to a Nokia Security Service Manager (NSSM), which is not necessarily required.

VPN log - View the log for your VPN policy installations, updates and synchronisations, and other VPN connections.

Edit VPN access points

Select Menu > Ctrl. panel > Settings and Connection > Destinations.

An access point is where your phone connects to the network. To use e-mail and multimedia services, or to browse web pages, you must first define internet access points for these services. Virtual private network (VPN) access points pair VPN policies with regular internet access points to create secure connections.

Your service provider may preset some or all access points for your device, and you may not be able to create, edit, or remove them.

Select a destination and Options > Edit, and define the following:

Connection name - Enter a name for the VPN access point.

VPN policy - Select the VPN policy to combine with the internet access point.

Internet access point - Select the internet access point with which to combine the VPN policy to create secure connections for data transfer.

Proxy server address - Enter the proxy server address of the private network.

Proxy port number - Enter the proxy port number.

Use access point - Select whether connections using this access point are established automatically.

The settings available for editing may vary.

For the correct settings, contact your company's IT department.

Use a VPN connection in an application

You may have to prove your identity when you log on to the enterprise network. Contact your company's IT department for the credentials.

To use a VPN connection in an application, the application must be associated with a VPN access point.

Tip: You can configure the application's connection setting to Always ask, in which case you select the VPN access point from a list of connections when a connection is established.

  1. In the application in which you want to create a VPN connection, select a VPN access point as the access point.

  2. If you are using legacy authentication, enter your VPN user name and passcode or password. If the SecurID token has become out of synchronisation with the clock of the ACE/Server, enter the next passcode. If you are using certificate-based authentication, you may have to enter the key store password.
