Samsung BlackJack (SGH-i607)Aventail provided this Samsung BlackJack (SGH-i607) from AT&T to test the Aventail Connect Mobile client. The client came preloaded on the phone and configured for use with Aventail's demo environment. As CNET uses Aventail's SSL VPN, I erased the default settings and reconfigured the client to work with CNET's VPN.
