Add VPN or DirectAccess
Windows Phone desperately needs support for Cisco SSL VPN, to allow people using their phones for work related purposes to connect to their office network.
Using SharePoint is a possible workaround, but assuming that everyone would keep their files on the server seems plain absurd.
Without VPN I don't see a reason why I would switch from my iPhone to Windows Phone, no matter how fast or beautiful it is.
My company already has Cisco AnyConnect deployed for VPN access. I don't see any reason why it would deploy SharePoint to support 50 or so odd phones out of 1500.
Without VPN Windows Phone 8 can only dream of being a business users first preference.
Need urgently vpn client
add vpn support as all other major mobile os have done.
Need a VPN Client with PPTP Support
Should be able to remote desktop to any Windows box accessible from VPN or on the network.
Add VPN ( PPTP ) for windows mobile 7
please add vpn.in my country internet is full block and we need vpn for internet!!!
W/o VPN this is of no use. not for business users. If I need to access my office files and intranet portals while on the go, do i need to use a separate phone (idiotic!!!!). Please dont suggest tethering with my notebook as it kills the purpose of mobility.
Also if the feature is included would that also be available as a patch for existing WP8 users or will it be for users who bought the hardware after the upgrade ?
I would only purchase it if the functionality is added.
P.S.- bought a NL720 for my wife a month back to test the waters but now am wary of buying a WP8 phone for myself because of the limitations in business use.
I need vpn
I love WP! I'm using it since day one! But my patience is almost over! I need VPN! Without it, I'm forced to change the os and my phone unfortunatly
Please don't add VPN support. Sniffing public hotspots is sooo much fun!
I thought this was coming GDR2 but I just heard it wasn't now, WE NEED THIS. I can tell you this for sure, the next phone I get will support VPN.
DirectAccess is too narrowly focused, but VPN is a real need. I'm a Microsoft Partner and Vendor, and I'm still on an iPhone5 due to the lack of this basic functionality.
I agree VPN is a requirement of a business smart phone. I need to able to access my files when I am out and about. Thether to Laptop to the Nokia 920 all OK. How ridiculous.
Still cant believe that there is no updated news for VPN.
VPN is imperative for some of us business users!!
Best to support all vpn type that android and ios support ootb

Hay developer gus! Come on... i couldn't use my 820 w/o VPN

No VPN? I purchased Lumia 920 for my company, but we found there's NO VPN ability..... it's the very basic feature! shame on Windows Mobile!
Please do.. Its such a basic necessity that you seem to have ignored completely.

VPN please, I will die without it, its my life.
Every smart phone with respect for itself has VPN option. Trying the lumia 820 before purchase was like to see all the features I needed from iPhone 4S. But what i did not expect to loose at least was that I now can no longer use my VPN. I use VPN to get the tunnel and admission to my files from China, further it also keeps me in touch with friends on social network sites. With all the stuff about logging in to your microsoft account and do everything from one place does not help people like me who is working in China. I believe your market is not targeting China..........
There is always some rumors about that it will happen soon with apollo plus........I dont believe this......how difficult can it be, if MS really wants to add VPN they would have been able to do that for long time ago........though I love my Lenovo with windows 8 platform i have to switch back to iPhone.
been unable to use my lumia 920 since before Christmas as i require VPN, the phone is still in the box and im stuck with my S3
Hello, Could you please provide the support for leap wifi connection in Windows Phone 8 devices
