Installing LegacyVPN

Before starting this installation, please ensure that you are running iOS version 5.0 or later.

  1. First you will need to install the "OpenVPN Connect" application. If you are looking at this page from your iOS device, you can click this link to be taken to the iTunes store page for "OpenVPN Connect". Once you have located the app, click install to have it added to your device.
  2. Next you will need to install the LegacyVPN configuration file. Log in to the secure LegacyVPN website in the Safari web browser with your UTORid and password, and create your configuration file if it does not already exist. Once you have created the file, click "Your Configuration File", and you should be presented with a screen that will allow you to "Open with 'OpenVPN'". (If you do not see a link for "Your Configuration File", click on "Mac OS X" at the bottom of the screen).
  3. Click on the small "+" (plus) icon that will appear in the OpenVPN Connect app to load your configuration file.
