AnyConnect for iOS

Note General

Some restricted services of the University or the State and University Library can only be used when you are on campus, so that the computer you use has an address from the area assigned to the University.

To access these services from home or on the road, you must install a so-called VPN client software (AnyConnect or OpenConnect) on your computer once and establish a connection to the campus with the VPN client before each access to the restricted services. This means that you are "virtually" on campus and can use the services you are used to.

Please note the different types of tunnels and make sure you choose the correct tunnel.

Note: To access the resources of the State and University Library (SuUB) you have to select the tunnel 'Tunnel-all-Traffic'.

Initial Setup - Step 1

Make sure your device is connected to the Internet. Install AnyConnect from the AppStore and start it.

Initial Setup - Step 2

The AnyConnect app wants to allow access to the VPN interface of your device by clicking OK.

Initial Setup - Step 3

Enter "" in the Server address field. Then click on "Save" at the top.

Initial Setup - Step 4

Enter the access data for your university account. The access data cannot be saved and must be entered again for each connection.

Finally, select the correct tunnel type and confirm with "Connect". The program should now establish the connection.

Initial Setup - Step 5

If you want to disconnect the VPN connection, move the slider for AnyConnect VPN to 0.
