    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Yes, you can. Please navigate to Policies-> iOS-> Network-> VPN and click Configure. Click on the drop-down list next to the option Connection Type and choose the option IPSec (Cisco). Configure the remaining options. Associate targets and save the policy. The VPN will now be configured on the target devices.

    Need to know more? Check out the help doc on configuring iOS VPN settings.

    Hi Opal,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    When you attach a VPN profile to a device, the user would have to manually turn ON/ OFF the VPN connections. This is the default state of VPN in devices, therefore, when an internet connection is established, the VPN needs to be turned ON every time.

    But enabling the option of using the VPN on demand, shall take care of this for you. Once an internet connection is enabled, the VPN connection will automatically connect to the server. Upon turning off the internet connection, the VPN shall be disconnected automatically.

    You can have a look at our official help document for the VPN On Demand topic, below:

    Cheers!
