Apple iPad PPTP VPN error

Note: If you get the above error when saving the connection, this is because you already have an existing VPN configuration with the same Description i.e MPN GBR.

To resolve this, please change the Description to something else i.e. MPN GBR 2, MPN UK or alternatively delete the older VPN configuration following the steps outlined on our Knowledge Base here.

Enabling VPN Connection

Connect to our service by sliding the VPN ON/OFF button on your device to the ON position.

The VPN will now attempt to connect.

You are connected

That's it, once you have connected successfully, the Status will show as Connected and you will be able to see the VPN logo at top left of your device screen.

Your iPad is now connected to our UK service and you should be able to browse the Web as if you are in the UK.

Other locations

Note: You need to have the correct country Plan or our Global Plan to connect to different countries.
