    I'm running ICS and I want to use a VPN, but the fact the phone won't allow using a VPN without a screen lock code or password is really annoying.

    Is this annoyance still there in Jelly Bean? Cos if it's gone I'll upgrade.

    Why people dont stick one of these on by default is a mystery. Swipe to unlock should be the first setting to change from a personal and corpate security point of view.

    Doesn't help answer the question just my general thought. Sorry.

    Really? Isn't it pretty obvious - the fact it's a pain in the ass? :p

    Anyone actually know the answer?

    Yes, it's still required in JB I'm afraid.

    I use VPNC it even supports Cisco PIX/ASA, etc.

    I personally think a passcode is a good idea (although far from high security) but don't see why anyone should be forced into applying one just because of vpn - the passcode could easily be brought in at connection point rather than for the entire phone usage. vpnc allows you to enter the password at connection.
