My main question is very simple. Is there ANY WAY to connect my notebook to our corporate network by using the storm? I need this, because i am travelling a lot and need to sync with our corporate fileservers.
I am using the Blackberry Storm 9500 on t-mobile in germany, with a BES-server and an unlimited dataplan (flatrate).
As far as i understand there are 2 possible ways to connect:
1.) Using the Storm as a modem and setting up a pptp-tunnel (VPN)
This is my prefered way. Using the Storm as a modem works perfectly. Internet-access works great on MacOS X and Win XP. But when trying to start a vpn-connection it doesn´t work. No matter what operating system. With another mobile the simcard does the job. But not with the Storm.
It seems to block pptp / vpn connections. (The BB Ipmodem setting on the BES is activated). What can I do?
2.) Some way I don´t know about yet via the BES-server
There seems to be a way to connect via the BES-VPN-tunnel. But I haven´t got a clue how that might work.
In my opinon this is an important point to quite a few business BES-Users since they need access to their file-servers in order to upload or download files they need (like presentations, large PDFs etc.). The iphone doesn´t support modem services for notebooks, so THIS IS At BIG ADVANTAGE for the Storm.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance to everybody,

the simcard does the job in other devices. The carrier t-mobile germany assured me, that everything is perfect -they are not blocking anything.
But aren´t there any built-in solutions in the BES? Isn´t anyone else using VPN / PPTP via Blackberry?
