Aventail Connect Mobile connectedOnce connected, the Aventail Connect Mobile client will display "State: Enabled" on the main screen.
If the client isn't able to connect, there are several possible problems--the phone's Internet connection is down, the Internet connection settings are improperly configured, the Aventail Connection Mobile connection settings are incorrect, the user improperly entered the login credentials.
On connected, click the phone's OK button to return to the phone's main screen with the client running. If properly configured, you should now be able to receive push updates through Outlook Mobile Access and access your company's Intranet.
For a complete account of my experience with the Samsung BlackJack and Aventail Connect Mobile (Smartphone) client, check out my TechRepublic Mobile and Wireless blog post, "Aventail Connect Mobile (Smartphone) provides secure, "push" e-mail and intranet access".
