Enable VPN configuration setting


This setting specifies whether the VPN client on a BlackBerry® device is turned on.

Default value

The default value is False. The BlackBerry device might not be able to use a Wi-Fi® network that requires VPN access, or it might require the use of an alternative form of access control.


Change this setting to True to require that a BlackBerry device use a VPN server to access a Wi-Fi network.

This configuration setting is obsolete in BlackBerry® Enterprise Server versions 4.1 SP3 and later.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.0
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP2
