To connect any iOS device (such as an iPad or an iPhone) to our eGate VPN system, you must download and install the Junos Pulse software (this can also be found by searching in the Apple App Store for "Junos Pulse"). Once you have installed this software, click "Configuration" and then "Add New Configuration." You can set the software up with the following settings:
- NAME: USD
- URL: egate.sandiego.edu
- USERNAME: *your ad username*
- CERTIFICATE: none
- REALM: *blank*
- ROLE: *blank*
Here is a screenshot of the program on an iPad:
Do not worry about the Password field while configuring. Once the connection is configured, it will prompt you for the password to log in. Once this is configured, you can connect and access pages and resources off campus that are restricted to use on USD's campus.
Don't have a VPN account? You can request one by filling out the new user form.
