Virtual Intranet Agent (VIA) - VIA is a software agent for Windows platforms that you can think of effectively as a software RAP for laptops. Once installed, it just disappears into the background and engages itself when needed. If the user is in the office or at home behind a RAP, the VIA client will not engage. But when the user is on the road, VIA will automatically set up an IPSEC or SSL connection to the corporate network with zero user input.
VIA integrates with the Mobility Controller in the data center, the same one that connects to branch office RAPs as well campus APs. This allows for significant consolidation including for the first time the opportunity to retire obsolete and out-of-gas VPN concentrators.
Finally, for situations where the VIA client can’t be installed, the Mobility Controller will also connect securely with existing VPN clients from all the major operating systems including Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
Components: Aruba Controller with (optional) PEF-V license for firewall enforcement
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN - News) today announced that its Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. The Wi-Fi-aware VPN application enables seamless security on both public and private wireless networks. VIA builds on Aruba’s Remote Networking portfolio, which offers automatic configuration of wireless device settings, requiring zero-touch for the end-user.
VIA is available from the Apple app store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/aruba-networks-via/id481378525?mt=8
Previously, no software license key was needed to use VIA – it was included for free in the base operating system. Beginning with AOS 6.1, the PEFV license will be required to use VIA. Non-VIA VPN functionality continues to be part of the base OS, and for non-Aruba VPN clients you will still only require the PEFV license if you want role-based access control and PEF functionality for VPN sessions.
New in AOSv6.1 is the ability for the controller to detect the operating system that has logged into the VIA portal and automatically download the correct version for the client. This functionality is currently broken, however. Please see bugs here:
Bug 54707 - WebUI does not present correct download link for via users logging in from Mac OS X machines
Bug 43413 - VIA download page and WebUI page need to present link for 64 bit VIA
To Manually download the 64-bit and osx platforms, please use:
p.s., via.arubanetworks.com has a custom welcome.html page that will properly detect your windows or mac version (report bugs with this to Carlen Hoppe)
Windows 8 is the same as Windows 7 in this regard, so no need to specify exact version

That’s the only way to do it today.
The simplest steps to make this feature work are.
IKEv2+Mschapv2 (without certificates) also work.
