How to configure third-party VPN solutions with Liquid UI

Many customers have asked questions about security. Liquid UI offers three types of security, as follows:

  • SecureConnect (available only with an Enterprise license)
  • VPN connectivity through a corporate firewall

In this section, we will explain how to configure Liquid UI to work with third-party VPN solutions. All configuration is done on the iOS device; no configuration is actually done in Liquid UI itself. To configure VPN on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, please do the following:

  1. On your device, click the Settings icon.

  2. In the Settings screen, go to General > VPN.

  3. Slide the VPN control from OFF to ON.

  4. Select the tab for the type of security your VPN will use (i.e. L2TP, PPTP, IPSec and more).

  5. Enter the configuration information for the selected VPN solution.

    Note: You will need to get this information from your IT department or network adminsitrator.
  6. Click Save.

  7. VPN is now configured on your iOS device.

Note: For additional information on using VPN with an iOS device, please see Apple's support knowledgebase. You may also need to set up the GuiXT Server on a DMZ. For information on using DMZs, please consult the Microsoft website.
