How do I access the WSU Virtual Private Network (VPN) on iOS devices?

Wayne State University does not officially support a mobile VPN client, but C&IT has successfully tested the Pulse Secure app with the network.

 

Follow the steps below to access the WSU VPN on iOS devices. If you have not set up two-factor authentication, use the URL vpn.wayne.edu in place of vpn.wayne.edu/secure.

  1. Download Pulse Secure from the Apple App store and open the app.


     
  2. Add the URL vpn.wayne.edu/secure and click Submit.


     
  3. The Add a Connection page will display. You may add a name and other information if desired. Click Save.


     
  4. Click Connect.


     
  5. Log in with your AccessID and password. 
    • Additional Password: In this field, add the appropriate term for your choice of secondary authorization.
      • Push: If you have the Duo mobile security app downloaded and configured, type Push and you will receive a push notification to verify your log in.
      • Phone1: If you have a phone number configured, type phone1 (no space) to receive a phone call or text message (depending on your account settings).
      • Passcode: Type passcode to receive a text message or Duo app message, depending on your account settings.


         
  6. You are now connected to the WSU VPN on your device. You will see a small VPN logo in the top left corner of your phone.



  7. Click Intranet to browse.


     
  8. Click Disconnect to end the connection.
