The iPhone is a smartphone that can do a number of things and almost act as if it were a computer. One of the amazing things that it can do is connect to a company’s virtual private network to allow employees access to their emails, files and the company server. Once the virtual private networking setting has been set onto an iPhone there will be a number of things that you will need to input into your iPhone to allow it to connect to a VPN. Here is a look at those things that need to be inputted into the phone’s setting.
Encryption Style. You will need to choose the type of encryption that will go with your iPhone. This will depend on the type of VPN that you are setting up. The options will include L2TP, PPTP and IPSec. If you are unsure which one you need contact the system administrator of the VPN.
Description. You will need to name your network. You can name it whatever you like and will remember.
IP Address. You will need to enter the IP address that is associated with the VPN server. This goes into the server section of the prompt. In most cases the IP address is the public IP address assigned to the computer.
Username and Password. Everyone is assigned a username and password to a VNP. You will need to enter these into the accounting field. However, if you want to sign in every time leave the password part blank.
