    I currently have an New unlocked Nexus phone I got from Europe and Im using it on the AT&T network. This phone has been working as expected; awesome!!!!! However it has one huge downside; the VPN will not work with our Sonicwall NSA3500!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ive spent over 8hours with tech support on this issue and bottom line 4.0.1 ICS will not connect to our firewall!! Weve tried connecting L2TP /IPsec PSK and the Netextender app in the Android market (yes, I have unlocked and rooted the phone). The L2TP connection keeps timing out and the SSL Netextender give me an I/O Error.

    Weve tested the L2TP VPN on my old nexus (2.3.4) and it works just fine.

    Is anyone else having this issue??? Does anyone know of a fix????? Please help if you know of a solution; thanks!!!

    Thank you for the heads up. I guess i'll sit tight and wait for the OTA update.

    I sure would like to know if anyone else was having this issue.
