Hi all 

I have some colleagues that need to connect via iPhone instead of laptop.

Anything special to think about?

firewall, application control etc.

Regards

Olle

L2TP over IPSec works beautifully. I was actually working in the TAC when the first iPhones shipped. Got one after a few days (once I had tried a friend's to make sure I didn't hate it like I did most cell phones), and found and reported a few problems with its included L2TP over IPSec client. If you treat your remote access clients as marginally-trusted and run a restrictive policy on the firewalls limiting what they can do, that can be a great option. No extra software, and simple endpoint config you can distribute through a provisioning profile.
