Aug 19, 2009 · I looked this all up for hours today and just can't figure it out. It needs to be L2TP preferably built in and working on SP3. It must support shared secret / pre-shared key because I'm using this for the iPhone and it requires it.
L2TP stands for Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol, and it doesn’t provide any encryption by itself. L2TP VPN usually uses an authentication protocol, IPSec (Internet Protocol Security), for strong encryption and authentication, which gives it an ultimate edge on some other most used protocols like PPTP. The L2TP protocol uses UDP ports 1701.
L2TP/IPsec is a tunneling protocol used by VPN providers to offer encryption. Though it is very secure method, it is generally not the preferred protocol to use if OpenVPN is available. However, it can be widely used by almost anything that is connected to the internet, but may be easily blocked because it must use the UDP port. Open the menu and choose Settings. Select Wireless and Network or Wireless Controls, depending on your version of Android. Select VPN Settings. Select Add VPN. Select Add L2TP/IPsec PSK VPN. Select VPN Name and enter a descriptive name. Select Set VPN Server and enter a server hostname: chicago.vpnreactor.net - Middle U.S. ny.vpnreactor.net - East Coast U.S.
