Configuration for the Netman VPN for an Apple iPhone must be done through the Cisco AnyConnect app rather than via VPN page in iPhone Settings.

Preparation

For security purposes, we do not keep a copy of the certificate you are sent in your email. For that reason, you will need to provide a way to copy the user certificate to your phone via HTTPS as required in the steps below.

We recommend using OneDrive for this purpose, and deleting the certificate from your OneDrive immediately after finishing the configuration below.

If using a OneDrive sharing link, when copying the URL you must remove everything from the "?" at the end of the URL and replace it with "?download=1". The final download URL should look something like:

https://my.onedrive.com/:v:/g/personal/your_email_com/e4x...e9B?download=1

Installation and Configuartion

1) Download the AnyConnect Client from the Apple App Store.

2) Open the AnyConnect app and go to Home > Connections > Add VPN Connection.

3) Enter "Vorco" in the Server Address field and tap Save. This VPN configuration will be deleted in a later step, but it is required to be present before continuing.

If you get a prompt saying "AnyConnect" Would Like to Add VPN Configurations, press Allow.

4) Go to the Diagnostics > Profile > Import Profile page in the AnyConnect app.

5) Enter or paste the URL for the configuration profile from the VPN Setup Instructions email, and press Enter.

6) Go to the Diagnostics > Certificate > Import User Certificate page in the AnyConnect app.

Enter the URL created in the preparation step for your certificate and press Enter.

7) Enter the password for the certificate provided by your administrator, then press Import, then press OK.

8) Go to the Home page in the AnyConnect app. Press the (i) next to the VPN called "Vorco" which was created in step 3, then press Delete VPN Connection and confirm with OK.
