    Windows phone 8.1 + netvanta VPN client

    drcpe New Member

      Now that a Windows phablet is to be released, and microsoft RDP client is available in Win8.1, I would like to access my office server (behind Netvanta 3448).  Is there a way to configure NetVanta VPN client to run on a Windows8.1 phone/phablet?

          drcpe -  Thanks for posting your question on the forum!

           

          At the time of this post, the NetVanta Secure VPN client is not supported on machines that run Windows 8.1. If you have any further questions, please contact Adtran Technical Support. You can open a ticket in one of the following ways :

              Noor,

               

               

               

              I really, really, really want to buy a larger windows phone (for my old eyes) and finally access my servers using a RDC, but only thing lacking to make this happen is an Adtran compatible VPN client.  Please do not make me choose and instead give me an Adtran development timeline commitment in which I can expect to see this windows phone Adtran VPN client to be available (I will wait up to six months, but then be  forced to choose an alternative VPN solution). 

               

               

               

              Curtis

               

               

               

              P.S.  I have noted the large number of views generated by this post and obviously I am not the only customer looking for this solution.

                  drcpe - Unfortunately, I cannot give a timeline at this time regarding a client for Windows 8.1. I would recommend you

                  contact your local Adtran sales representative regarding your need for a VPN client that supports Windows 8.1.

                   

                  Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions.

                   

                  Thanks,

                  Noor

                  Its been over 5 months since I've seen any discussion on the VPN compatibility with Win8.1 OS... Is Adtran making any headway with this issue? Are they even trying?  Should I just go with an alternate solution that supports vpn on 8.1... not that I really want to, but the time frame here is getting a little ridiculous.

                  Thanks,
