How To Set Up a VPN for Nokia and Other Symbian Based Phones

To set up a VPN connection for a phone running Symbian OS, we need to install a little app. Nokia does not provide a PPTP VPN client for their phones, they have an IPSEC client that is quite complicated.So a handy solution is symvpn from Telexy Networks, the only PPTP VPN client for Nokia phones and is available as a free 14 day trial version

SymVPN is compatible with the Series 60 3rd Edition phones based on Symbian OS 9.1:

- Nokia E-Series: E51, E60, E61, E61i, E63, E65, E66, E70, E71, E90;
- Nokia N-Series: N80, N80 Internet Edition, N81, N81 8GB, N82, N91, N91 8GB, N92, N93, N93i, N95, N95 8GB

It is expected to work with new Samsung G810 and any S60 3.0/3.1 edition devices with WLAN, 3G or WiMAX support. It can also be used on S60 3.2 edition devices too (Nokia N78, N79, N85, N96, Samsung INNOV8) with applications that operate with Access Points in 3.0-3.1 editions style.
