Two methods can be used to connect to the VPN. The native client or an app downloaded from the Google play store.
It is only necessary to use VPNCilla if the native client does not connect to the VPN.
Note: there is a trial (10 day) version and a purchased version. It is suggested the trial version is downloaded first to ensure this works on the device and then upgrade to the paid version once it has proven to work, if you wish to do so. Or you can just delete the trial version then download and install the free version again if that is preferable.
Once the VPN connection has been established the key turns green and the state changes to connected. There is a key symbol in the top bar to alert you that a VPN connection is established.
Figure 6: VPNCilla connected
To close the VPN connection go to the VPNCilla app and tap UoP as shown in Figure 6. The key symbol will disappear from the top bar and you will be disconnected from the VPN.
If after following these instructions you still cannot connect to the University VPN please contact IT support.
