Follow the instructions below to setup the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client on Mac.
Step 1 – Download the Client
Download the Cisco VPN client to your computer from the Tech Tab on myBama.
Step 2 – Install the Client
Double-click the downloaded file, and accept the defaults. It will install and the box below will pop up. Click “Connect.”
Step 3 – Enter Your myBama Credentials
You should then see a screen like the one below. Enter your myBama credentials. In the “Second Password” field, type “push” or enter a passcode from the DUO app. If you type “push”, it will prompt DUO to send a push notification to your DUO-registered device. You will need an active DUO account to obtain VPN access.
Step 4 – Confirm Your Connectivity
All dialog boxes will disappear, and you will be connected. You can confirm connectivity by checking the Cisco AnyConnect icon at the top right of your screen. The lock indicates connected. Click on this icon or your door lock icon to connect/disconnect.
Step 5 – Drag the Cisco AnyConnect from your applications folder to your Dock.
*Note* If you do not completely quit the Cisco AnyConnect client after disconnecting, on subsequent connections you may see an entry like the one below. Please choose “campus” from the dropdown list. The uavpn-r.ua.edu entry will not connect.
