Configure VPN on the iPad

Some, but certainly not all, members of the Creighton Community will connect to campus from home or other remote location using VPN (Virtual Private Network). If you are looking to connect to the Creighton network with your iPad via VPN, this page will provide the basics on how to get connected.

Go to the App Store and Download AnyConnect by Cisco. This is a free App.

Once you’ve downloaded and installed AnyConnect on your iPad, launch the App.

On the left side of the screen tap Add New Connection
