Mergic VPN 1.1 for Palm OS 5

Mergic VPN 1.1 for Palm OS 5
Mergic's Virtual Private Network (VPN) client allows you to securely connect to a private network, such as your home or corporate LAN, using your handheld's Internet connection. This allows other applications that require network access, such as network HotSyncŪ, e-mail clients, and remote control clients to connect to the computers they need to access. Mergic VPN provides you with the connectivity using widely available authentication and encryption technologies along with the Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP).

To use Mergic VPN you'll need access to a VPN server running the PPTP protocol. PPTP server support is available as part of many platforms including most Cisco platforms, Nortel Networks VPN products, several of the Microsoft operating systems (Windows XP, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server, Windows NT Workstation and Server), Linux and other operating system and firewall/VPN servers and appliances such as those available from SnapGear, WatchGuard and Netopia.

Features

  • Auto Connect. User selected applications can automatically connect to and disconnect from the VPN server as needed without requiring the user to launch the Mergic VPN application.
  • Split tunneling. Allows simultaneous access to the Internet and private network.
  • Supports TCP/IP connections using IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) wireless LAN modules, wireline and wireless modems, smartphones, or a mobile phone connected to a handheld using Bluetooth, infrared or cable.
  • Support for 40, 56 and 128-bit Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption (MPPE) in both stateless and stateful modes. Mergic VPN attempts to connect with the VPN server using the strongest (128-bit, stateless) encryption available. If the VPN server doesn't support that level of encryption Mergic VPN will try to connect with the next strongest level of encryption. This negotiation process continues until the weakest (40-bit, stateful) level of encryption is tried.
  • Supports the PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAPv1, and MS-CHAPv2 authentication protocols. For security reasons, PAP authentication is disabled by default and, also by default, if the VPN server attempts to negotiate MS-CHAPv1, NT type responses are enabled and LAN Manager type responses are disabled. PAP authentication and LAN Manager type responses can be enabled by turning off the Encryption Required setting in Mergic VPN.
  • Highly optimized encryption and authentication routines provide fast authentication and good perfomance over all network types, including 3G wireless networks and 802.11b wireless LANs.
