VPN on Demand

This setting applies to iOS and macOS devices only.

Select to enable VPN On Demand.

The SonicWall Mobile Connect field displays.

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

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

The Provider Type field displays.

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

You cannot delete a per-app VPN setting that is being used by an app. Remove the per-app VPN setting from the app before you delete the setting.

You can enable per-app VPN for an app when you:

add the app in the App Catalog.

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 apps.

Provider Type

If Per-App VPN is set to Yes, define whether the per-app VPN service will tunnel traffic at the application layer (app-proxy) or the IP layer (packet-tunnel).

Select app-proxy (default) or packet-tunnel.
