How Do I Setup VPN on my Android?

 

NOTE: Because of the varying settings across Android operating systems, not all devices will work with the AnyConnect app.

 

  • First, Open the Cisco AnyConnect client for your phone or tablet. It looks like this:

  • You should now see this screen:

  • Click on Add New VPN Connection and you should now see this screen:

  • Give the connection a description and set the server address as vpn.ufl.edu. Leave the Certificate as Automatic. It should now look like this:

  • After pressing Done, you should now see the connection on the screen, click on it and login with your GatorLink username and password.

  • You should now be automatically connected to the VPN.

 

Note: You may be prompted to accept that this application will send all traffic over the VPN, if you are, go ahead and accept it.

  • Additional Information:
  • You may see two connections in the list after creating the VPN. This new one is automatically named "Gatorlink VPN" and its settings cannot be edited unless you go into the phones settings and clear the apps data. However, you can simply delete the one created by the user(as seen in the following screenshot) and use the one that is created by the client without having any issues.
