Connecting an Apple Device to the CUDN using the VPN service

How to connect an Apple Device to the CUDN using the VPN service

A virtual private network is a network which uses encryption to provide a secure connection through an otherwise insecure network, typically the Internet. Or in other words "private data travelling over public IP infrastructure". This is not a new concept, but is becoming increasingly important as people need to access their IT resources when away from home, or when using external ISP providers. In this particular case, the connection is a VPN (a virtual private network connection to the CUDN).

Requirements

  1.  A working network connection. The VPN software transmits the data securely over an existing network connection.
  2. You must also install or configure the correct software for the version of OS X installed.
    • Users with Lion (10.7) and later installed should use the native OS X VPN client following the appropriate instructions from this page
    • iOS users should follow the instructions specifically for iOS
