Overview

The Cisco AnyConnect client is available for mobile Android devices. This tutorial will walk you through installing and using the mobile AnyConnect client.

You must be a part of the VandalVPN group to run this software. If you are not in the group you can send a request to the ITS Help Desk (helpdesk@uidaho.edu) for access.

NOTE: The follow walkthrough was made using a Samsung Galaxy S III and may not apply to all phones. If you have a different manufacturer please visit the following site for instructions on how to connect using the AnyConnect client.

Step 1

Search for the AnyConnect app in Google Play, and install it. Once it is done installing, either open it from the store, your applications or the Successfully Installed notice in the Notification panel.

Select OK to close the Server Address entry window, then Done to connect to the UI Virtual Private Network. There should now be a check next to the connection "vpn.uidaho.edu." Select the back button of your device or back button to the left of Advanced Preferences to return to the main screen of the Cisco Anyconnect client.


Change the Description if you want, and then enter in the server address as specified.
Make sure to enter the server address.

To the right of AnyConnect VPN there is an on/off switch. Select it, and it will bring up a new window for you to enter in your NetID and password. Make sure the group is VandalVPN, which should be automatically selected. Click Connect when you have entered all the correct information.

Set the switch to on, enter your credentials, then press connect.
Once you have set up the connection, turn on the switch and enter your credentials.

If you have problems connecting after carefully following all these steps, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 208-885-4357.

You are now connected.
Your VPN will work, with the key icon indication on the top right of your device screen.
