Using the Bayside VPN
Bayside Christian College provides remote VPN (Virtual Private Network) access to the College internal systems for staff and some students (e.g. those in the BYOD program). This document has been created to provide instructions on installing and configuring the VPN as well as connecting to the college network and accessing internal systems.
VPN access is available on PC's, Macs, and iPads and provides a secure, encrypted way to connect to the College remotely to access documents on the File Server, internal databases and sites.
The Bayside VPN is automatically installed through a Configuration Profile on the iPad. Any enrolled iPad that is in an allowed VPN group (e.g. Staff, BYOD students) will have the VPN already installed and configured on their iPad.
Installation and use of the VPN on the Mac is covered in a separate tutorials. PC users will need to bring their laptop to the ICT Department for installation and configuration of the VPN.
Setup the Bayside VPN on your iPad
Open the iPad VPN Configuration
Configure the BCC VPN
Set Your Username and Password
Step 4 - Once the BCC VPN configuration opens add the following information to the page and click save. Please ensure you DO NOT change any of the other settings or the VPN will stop working.
Account: your network username
Password: your network password
NOTE: The network username and password is the one you use to logon to the computer or Edumate.
Turn on the VPN
Step 5 - If you have entered your username and password correctly, all you now need to do is toggle the "VPN" switch to the On mode. Once the VPN is connected, you will see the status change to "Connected" and the "VPN" symbol at the top of the iPad menubar next to the WiFi indicator.
Congratulations, you are now connected to the Bayside internal network via VPN on your iPad. This will allow you to connect to resources such as the File Server (using mobilEcho).
