Junos Pulse SSLVPN Android Install and configuration instructions

Android: Android devices of version 2.0 or later can use Junos Pulse to connect to the UC SSLVPN. To check the version of your Android phone or tablet, from Settings, select About Device, and look for the line that says "Android Version."

To download the Junos Pulse App: 

1.      Open the Google Play store app on your phone.

2.      Enter "Junos pulse" in the search bar.

3.      Select "Junos Pulse".
Note: If your device is a Samsung smartphone, instead choose the version labeled Junos Pulse for Samsung. If you're using a Galaxy Tab, choose Junos Pulse for Galaxy Tab 7.0. Tap Install, and follow the on-screen instructions.

To configure the Junos Pulse App:
1.      Start the Junos Pulse application, and accept the End User License Agreement.

2.      Tap, Add Connection. In the "Connection Name:" field, enter UC SSLVPN.

3.      In the URL field, enter https://sslvpn.uc.edu  In the “Username:” field, enter your 6+2 CLS username and make sure "Authentication Type:" is set to Password. Leave the "Realm" and "Role" fields blank. Then tap, Create Connection.

4.      Exit fully out of the app.

To connect or disconnect:

1.       Open the Junos Pulse app, and tap Connect.
Note: The first time you do this, you will see a dialog box labeled Attention that will require you to check a box labeled, I trust this application. Check the box, and then tap OK.

2.       You will see the SSL VPN Service logon web page. Your username should already be filled in for you as long as you configured it within the Junos Pulse, if not, enter your 6+2 CLS username and password, and then tap Sign In.
Note: In some versions of Android, you will see the Attention box here rather than when you first launch Connect. In that case, check the box and tap OK.
