IOS VPN without using Via

Hi,

 

We require an 'always on' VPN for ios devices. Via works fine on windows devices as the 'no user disconnect' feature is supported. We are stuggling to find a solution to IOS devices, as this feautre is not supported.

 

Does anyone know if we can use the same via connection profile but use the native ios vpn and therefore lock this down? or use the native aruba VPN (not via) to work with ios devices?

 

Any advised would be greatly apreciated.

 

Thanks,

Re: IOS VPN without using Via

You could potentially use the PPTP VPN element on the controllers to terminate the iOS VPN. I have zero experience in setting up VPNs on iOS devices though!

Thanks for your response James,

 

Would you expect ikev2 to work in this scenario?

 

Have you tired this with other devices before? Windows clients?

 

Cheers,

Jack

Nope, ikev2 wont work. Here's the option you have for PPTP.

Re: IOS VPN without using Via

What version are you running or license used, we dont have the PPTP option, just IPSEC?

You may need a PEFV license to see the PPTP options.

Not true.  That should be available in the base product.

Re: IOS VPN without using Via

So we are getting someone where trying to make the native ios vpn work with the controllers.

 

Ikev2 looks to work, but the vpn tunnel never seems to establish on the phone, I can see the user in the user-table, Clearpass authenticates it to the correct role, but still the VPN does not establish.

 

Any thoughts?

VPN now works natively with IOS using Ikev2. Currently authenticating using Mschapv2, althought looking to move to Cert based auth.
