If it will be available I may purchase the 4g version to connect to a corporate network. If it isn't I probably won't bother.

Previous Kindle devices have not been VPN friendly. Don't know that they would suddenly change.

Actually yes... according to this article in the Seattle Times

"We've got a great new mail application with best-in-class Exchange integration. We have a new calendar application, we have a new contacts application," said Peter Larsen, vice president of Amazon's Kindle tablet business.

"We also worked with third parties such as Cisco to make sure that their VPN [virtual private network] client is ready and waiting in our app store. Those are some examples of how we're making it better for enterprise."

I'm sure lots of students using Kindles would make Amazon happy also. :)

How does one obtain the URL, etc, for the connection? It was not supplied in any of the documentation.

Where do I get the URL and the rest of the account set up data for the Cisco VPN? I got in downloaded just fine. Cisco says my IT department has it...I am my IT department...?

That is the only place, whoever set up your Cisco VPN (usually the IT Department) would know the settings to give to someone to allow them access to the VPN.
What settings do you tell anyone in the company to use to access the Cisco VPN? You'd probably use the same settings on the Kindle.

I am setting up at my home office....I am my IT department. Where did your IT people come up with the inputs?

Try tigervpns download from amazon app store. It didn't ask me for all the technical information, just where I wanted to connect to. Basic but functional.
