IKEv2 VPN manual setup on iOS devices

Modified on: Fri, 5 May, 2017 at 2:13 PM



While we recommend our MPN VPN Manager app that automate the IKEv2 connection for your Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad etc ), you can also set this up manually following the steps below:


1) IKEv2 VPN Setup


Open Settings and select VPN 


Click on Add VPN Configuration



Select IKEv2





Head back and enter your VPN details as below:


FREE SERVICE ACCESS


Note: To access our Free service, you'll need to change the server and remote ID to FRE.mypn.co and your connection will be rotated between different countries we have in our Free VPN cluster.




In this example, we will enter the servername gbr.mypn.co to connect to our GBR servers.


Description: MPN GBR 

Server: gbr.mypn.co

Remote ID: gbr.mypn.co


Note: If you want to connect to any of our other servers, ie our USA servers, all you need to do is change the server and remote ID. For a detailed list of server names, please refer to our complete list of servers.


User Authentication : leave it default to Username

Username: Your My Private Network Username

Password: Your My Private Network Password

Proxy : Off


Double check that you have entered everything correctly and then click on Done.



2) Connecting to the VPN


 To connect to our service, select the configuration that you have just created and turn on the VPN Connection by sliding the VPN ON/OFF button  on your device to the ON position.




Once you have connected successfully, the status will turn Green and states Connected.



In addition, you will be see the VPN logo at top left of your iPad screen (or top right of your iPhone)



Just to reiterate, if you are trying to connect to any other countries that we have servers in, please change the description accordingly (i.e. MPN USA to connect to USA ) and change the servername to be usa.mypn.co


A full list of all our servers can be found on our in this Knowledge Base Article.
