Description

Provide a description that clarifies the purpose of these settings.

Channel

For macOS only. Select one of the following distribution options:

Device channel - the configuration is effective for all users on a device. This is the typical option.

User channel - the configuration is effective only for the currently registered user on a device.

Connection Type

Select IPSec (Cisco).

Server

Enter the IP address, hostname, or URL for the VPN server.

Proxy

None is the default setting. To configure a Manual or Automatic proxy, go to Proxy - Manual or Proxy - Automatic.

Username

Specify the user name to use (required.) The default value is $USERID$. Include at least one of the following variables:

$USERID$, $EMAIL$, $SAM_ACCOUNT_NAME$, $USER_CUSTOM1$, $USER_CUSTOM2$, $USER_CUSTOM3$, $USER_CUSTOM4$, $CUSTOM_DEVICE_Attributename$, $CUSTOM_USER_Attributename$, $NULL$

You can use combinations such as the following:

$USERID$:$EMAIL$

$USERID$_$EMAIL$

 

Enter $NULL$ if you want the field presented to the user to be blank. Users will need to fill in the relevant username.

User Authentication

Select the authentication method to use: Shared Secret / Group Name or Certificate.

Group Name

Shared Secret / Group Name authentication.

Specify the name of the group to use. If Hybrid Authentication is used, the string must end with “[hybrid]”.

Shared Secret

Shared Secret / Group Name authentication.

The shared secret passcode. This is not the user’s password; the shared secret must be specified to initiate a connection.

Confirm Shared Secret

Shared Secret / Group Name authentication.

Re-enter the shared secret to confirm.

Use Hybrid Authentication

Shared Secret / Group Name authentication.

Select to specify hybrid authentication, i.e., server provides a certificate and the client provides a pre-shared key.

Prompt for Password

Shared Secret / Group Name authentication.

Specify whether the user should be prompted for a password when connecting.

XAuth Enabled

Specifies that IPsec XAuth authentication is enabled. Select this option if your VPN requires two-factor authentication, resulting in a prompt for the password. This option is enabled by default.

Password

Specify the password to use. The default value is $PASSWORD$. Use this field to specify a custom format, such as $PASSWORD$_$USERID$.

Include at least one of the following variables:

VPN On Demand

Select to enable VPN On Demand.

On Demand rules are associated with an array of dictionaries that define the network match criteria identifying a particular network location.

VPN On Demand matches the dictionaries in the On Demand Rules against properties of your current network connection to determine whether domain-based rules should be used in determining whether to connect, then handles the connection as follows:

If domain-based matching is enabled for a matching On Demand Rule dictionary, then for each dictionary in that dictionary’s connection evaluation array, VPN On Demand compares the requested domain against the domains listed in the Domains array.

If domain-based matching is not enabled, the specified behavior (Connect, Disconnect, Allow, or Ignore) is used if the dictionary otherwise matches.

 

VPN On Demand rules are applied when the device's primary network interface changes, for example when the device switches to a different Wi-Fi network.

A matching rule is not required. The Default Rule is applied if a matching rule is not defined.

If you select Evaluate Connection, a matching rule is not required.

You can create up to 10 On Demand matching rules.

For each matching rule you can create up to 50 Type and Value pairs.

Per-app VPN is supported on iOS devices version 9.0 or supported newer versions.

Select Yes to create a per-app VPN setting. An additional license may be required for this feature.

edit an in-house app or an App Store app in the App Catalog.

When multiple labels are assigned to associate the selected VPN configurations in the Per-App VPN section, then VPN prioritization will happen in the order of the selected list.

See the Ivanti EPMM [email protected] Guide for information about how to add or edit iOS apps.

Provider Type
