Mergic™ VPN allows you to securely access a private network, such as your corporate or home LAN, using a connection to the Internet. This means that you can access resources on your LAN just as if you were directly connected to it.
Mergic VPN 1.1 is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) client for the Palm OS that uses widely available authentication and encryption technologies along with the Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) to provide you with a secure connection to your private network.
Virtually all network enabled Palm OS handhelds and smartphones are supported including the palmOne Tungsten series, palmOne Treo series smartphones, Sony CLIÉ handhelds, Samsung i300, i330 and SPH-i500 smartphones, and the Kyocera QCP 6035 and 7135 smartphones, as well as other models and devices from other manufacturers.
•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.
