When using an Apple device for a Cisco dCloud session, the Apple device must be connected to the Cisco dCloud environment. There are two options for connecting an Apple device to the Cisco dCloud environment:
- Connect to the wireless network on a router
- Connect to another available wireless network and then configure Cisco AnyConnect
Only one of these connection methods is required. Both are described below.
Connect to Wireless Network on a Router
To connect an Apple device to an active Cisco dCloud session using a router configured for dCloud:
- On your Apple device, go to Settings > Wi-Fi.
- From the list of Networks, select the data network associated with your router. For example, cisco-dcloud-data-kit-XX (where XX represents the identifier assigned when you registered your router).
- When prompted, type the password adgjmptw and tap Connect.
Your Apple device will receive an IP address and will be active on the network.
