    One of my co-workers has a Droid 2 Global and uses the extra VPN Motorola included to connect back to the company's Cisco gateway. He had to modify the profile to get Group Authentication to work, but it works fairly well.

    I would like to get a Droid 3, but was wondering if Motorola included this extra VPN again so that I could do this also. Does anyone know or has anyone messed with this on a D3?

    I'd love to get mine to work with the Cisco ASA5510.
    I have not messed with the vpn on this though. Hopefully someone else would know

    I haven't used it, but there are VPN settings under the wireless & networks settings

    Unfortunately, Cisco equipment requires Cisco VPN software rather than generic VPN software :(

    Yea, I thought it could be compatible though. I looked in the Market and didn't see anything made by Cisco, but there are several VPN applications in there. Maybe you could get lucky with one of those?

    Has to be Cisco. It's a "security" feature, lol.

    Cisco supports several non-proprietary protocols including pptp (assuming your IT folks set it up that way). The only problem most people have is the exclusion of ms-chap from windows 7 client. My xoom connects to the VPN flawlessly with the built in VPN client. My Droid 3 however connects, but is very shakey through 3g. It connects for a few minutes and then it seems to stale out. Both the phone and the pix agree they are connected, but no traffic will pass through until I disconnect and reconnect. May just be a VZW thing...
    Hope that helps
