iPhone Configuration Utility 3.3 adds support for "Custom" SSL VPNs

Your rating: None (2 votes)

Apple has updated its iPhone Configuration Utility for Mac and Windows to version 3.3. The release notes simply say "Minor updates and additions for iOS 4.3."

The only change I've come across so far may be a big one: There's a new "Custom SSL" option in the VPN Connection Type. I don't know which SSL VPNs this enables, but it sure looks intriguing.

For other SSL VPN solutions, contact your vendor and ask if they have an app in the App Store that can be configured with iPhone Configuration Utility. Enter the configuration information you get from the vendor by choosing Custom SSL from the Connection Type pop-up menu. Make sure the Identifier field matches the identifier specified by your vendor’s VPN app and is in reverse DNS format (for example, com.example.myvpn). Your users must install both the vendor’s app and the configuration profile to connect to your network.
