Setup Auto-VPN

How to use Entreda’s automatic Virtual Private Network (VPN) for a Windows or Mac OS X device

 

If Entreda detects that a non-secure WIFI network is being accessed, it will automatically prompt the device user. The user will have the option to remediate this by enabling a secure browsing session (VPN tunnel).

 

NOTE: Before enabling WIFI remediation, contact support@entreda.com so we can push a plugin to enable the VPN service. 

 

Ensure that WIFI remediation is enabled

 

1. Login to the Entreda Unify web console at https://unify.entreda.com using your credentials 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Click on Preferences from the Unify dashboard   

 

 

 

 

 

3. Select Auto-Remediation   

 

 

 

 

4. Select the device you want to modify   

 

 

5. Make sure the WIFI box is checked

After selecting the device, wait until the processing text goes away on the right side. If you see a blue checkmark next to the WIFI box, that means WIFI remediation is enabled   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If WIFI does not have a blue checkmark next to it, click on the box and then  click Apply Settings  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After clicking Apply Settings, select the device again from the drop menu to ensure the changes have been applied. You should now see a blue checkmark next to WIFI

Q & A

 

How should the WIFI access point be setup?

The WIFI access point should be set up to use any link encryption other than WPA2-AES. For example, set your WIFI access point to use WPA-TKIP.

How does the WIFI remediation work?

If Entreda Unify detects that a non-secure WIFI network is being accessed (anything other than WPA2-AES), it will automatically prompt the user to remediate. The user will be prompted with an option to enable a secure encrypted tunnel (VPN) for their browsing/internet access.

How often is the data refreshed in the Entreda Unify Console after a settings change has been made?

It takes approximately 3-4 minutes for the data to appear in the Entreda Unify web console. You may need to refresh the page.

How quickly does Entreda Unify detect that an unsecured WIFI network has been accessed?

Each time a device connects to a different WIFI network, Entreda Unify checks the network. If it detects any issues, the user will get a remediation prompt within 2 minutes.
