Setting up your VPN access on Blackberry Devices.
VPNUK recommends connections over IKEv2 when using Blackberry v10+ devices.
Blackberry have always offered very little suppport for VPN connections through their Devices and Mobile Phones. However, firmware version 10 devices are compatible with the VPNUK service but only through Generic IKEv2 connections.
