    You must setup a VPN at your home. Pest option would be to buy a router with built in VPN server.

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    The iPad can connect to a VPN which is built right in without needing a new app.

    Yeah, are you trying to setup a VPN or just connect to an existing VPN. if you want to connect to an existing VPN you can set it up in settings > network > VPN.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I want to use my ipad at hotspots while traveling. I had a subscription for hotspot vpn for my computer. I have been reading that ipad will only accept pptp which is not all that secure. Just wondering what everyone else is using when at a public hotspot. Any more thoughts?:confused:

    What about DNS?

    The built in VPN works fine but does not resolve DNS addresses on the private network... is that a VPN setting issue or a known issue with the built in VPN client?

    I have a similar issue but VNC is no use to me as I want to use my networked NAS drive.

    Choosing a home router is a real minefield, DD-WRT is recommended often but there is a dizzying array of options and generally the software outperforms the hardware - e.g. the VPN might work but your wireless speed will be horribly slow.

    I think I'm accepting I'll have to spend more than I'd previously considered for ease of use and reliability, therefore does anyone have any personal recommendations on a good home router with endpoint / termination functionality for VPN?

    Thank you

    I use a site called hidepad.com, they charge $8.99/month, but it was really easy to setup and I haven't had any issues yet. I also found them on Facebook, where they're running an iPad (64GB with Wi-Fi + 3G) giveaway. I entered. :)

    Aplus VPN is the best for ipad and iphone

    I am using AplusVPN for my ipad and iphone both. They offer PPTP VPN that is very fast, reliable and has unlimited bandwidth. Pricing is the best among all other competirs in this category. I have been using them for a few months now and would highly recommend.

    I'm really struggling to find out what goes in the "secret" field. Apparently it's a password used when the iPad was set up, however, I have no recollection of doing this?

    Can anyone help?

    Maybe vpnswiss.com could be the right vpn that you are looking for! I use it manly for watching hulu and netflix from switzerland... but, its also great to protect yourself! was easy to install and works fine... so far!

    keep cool!

    Best vpn for ipad 2

    Hello pegg12, I use https://www.boxpn.com vpn service for ipad 2. It works flawless. I just turn on vpn, on my ipad and it just connects in 2-3 seconds.

    I mostly use www.boxpn.com vpn in US for my hotspot security but I also use it in Europe to watch contents like Netflix via vpn on my trips. I suggest boxpn.

    Hello Pegg12,

    Yes PPTP is not a very secure protocol but it's the fasted vpn protocol. In order to get the hightest security on iPhone or iPad you should be using L2TP protocol. iOS 5 supports L2TP properly properly. I use boxpn (www.boxpn.com) for my vpn service you can get in touch with them and ask for L2TP setup instructions, but probably other vpn providers can provide the same security level.

    Here you can also find iOS vpn setup instructions : https://www.boxpn.com/setupios.aspx

    Y
    ou just need to select L2TP on STEP 6 at the top sections and enter a passphrase key which will be provided to you by your vpn service provider.

    Hope this helps.
