VPN User Name configuration setting


This setting specifies the default user name that a BlackBerry® device uses to log in to your organization's VPN server.

Default value

The default value is a null value.


Configure this setting if you want to create a default user name for all user accounts.

If a user types a user name on a BlackBerry device manually, IT policy updates overwrite or delete the value that the user typed. To retain the value that the user types on the BlackBerry device, verify that the updated configuration setting uses the same value as this setting.


You must change the Enable VPN configuration setting to True so that a BlackBerry device can use this setting.

Minimum requirements

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