The VPN API allows Symbian OS applications and servers to perform VPN-specific operations, especially those related to VPN policies. The operations include:
  • Importing policies

  • Listing policies

  • Finding out detailed information about the policies

  • Deleting policies

NOTE. Direct policy activation/deactivation is not possible through this API. This is because the use of VPNs is based on the activation/deactivation of VPN IAPs and policy activation/deactivation is a (hidden) part of this process. The activation/deactivation of VPN IAPs is similar to the activation/deactivation of any other IAPs and is thus performed via standard Symbian OS interfaces.
