Is there a way to connect to Cryptostorm using an IPad running iOS 8.1? Any advice welcome. Thank you.

A proper iOS connection guide is something we have on our to-do list, but there's a bit of a dearth of iOS devices amongst the team at the moment :oops:

In the meantime, your best bet to get started is to refer to severide's iOS tutorial for cryptofree which works great as-is if you want to connect via cryptofree, but if you have purchased a token, you might instead want to use this config I whipped up for another user with a similar question


This will allow you to skip step #1 in his list. #2 is the same, but #3 is a little different: The username you need to supply will be your hashed token, which can be obtained by pasting your token into the form here, though care must be taken to ensure the "Token:" field it cleared completely before pasting or typing in your token. Any errant spaces or other characters will generate a different hash that will be incorrect and cause the connection to fail.

So, provide hash output as your username, and the password can be anything, but most clients will complain if it's left blank, so just put in something random.

Hope that helps, and hopefully we can get our hands on more iOS devices to put together something a bit more visual and with a bit more detail to help getting people started :)

EDIT:

Here's a couple more configs requested by one of our users

Thanks for taking the time to look at this. I will try your suggestions and see what happens and then report back here when I am able. I do have a token and will try it as you suggest.

Cheers for writing this,

Thought I'd post back that this guide helped me connect via OpenVPN Connect on iOS 9.0.2 on my ipad as well as my iOS phone. I hate it when someone posts a thread and then never says it works :)

This was a great help - but could I trouble you for a config for singapore? I'm from Australia and that's got the best connection for AU users.
