VPN from iPhone and iPad to ASA's

Unanswered Question
Aug 9th, 2010


Looking at the data sheets and the configuration documentations, I am not finding information as to whether and how we can support VPN connections from iPhones and iPads into an Cisco ASA.

Is this via ssl clients and what kind of support

Anyone have any information?  thanks.

I have this problem too.

Ipad as well as iphone can be supported via remote vpn. there is a default cisco ipsec client on the ipad that works well for remote access.

That was laughably unhelpful.  Thanks for a good chuckle though - nice to see the creation of an official .pdf document that's 3 pages long, when you could have responded with "Configure as you would any IPsec client." right in the post.

I'll do you one better Mr. Snarky CCIE guy .  Jason's post has some really good stuff.


Especially the link to Apple's manual:


That manual is the first .pdf I've found that actually describes settings to some level of detail other than "it should work like any other IPsec client", describing:

  1. Authentication methods
  2. Authentication groups
  3. Certificates
  4. IPsec settings
  5. and some Misc stuff
