Setting up Cisco AnyConnect on iOS

VPN 10-060

What you need to know

The Cisco AnyConnect software allows you to access only internally released services of the university from outside. After connecting, you are a participant in a virtual private network (VPN) and will receive an IP address from the address range of Furtwangen University.

To carry out the installation, you need a working internet connection and iOS 6.0 or later.

What you have to do

  1. Either search for "Cisco AnyConnect" in the AppStore on your device or use this link and install the free Cisco AnyConnect application.

  2. After installation, open the Cisco AnyConnect application and confirm the security message that appears by clicking "OK".

  3. Click on "Add VPN connection..."

  4. Enter a "Description" (you can choose it freely - here in the example "HFU") and as "Server address" and then confirm with "Done".

  5. Activate the VPN connection with the switch behind "AnyConnect-VPN".

  6. Then enter the data of your HFU account under "Username" and "Password" and click on "Connect".

  7. You are now connected and can use internal services of the university.
