EPFL VPN on the iPhone
(category : Tips)
My phone provider doesn't provide any data plan, I am however able to surf the web and check my e-mails on the go with my iPhone at high speed, for free and in a lot of places in Switzerland. How? Thanks to the integrated VPN client on the iPhone and the partnership of EPFL with several hotspots providers. As explained on the page SWITCHmobile : PWLAN, all wi-fi hotspots from Monzoon, TPN, TheNet and Swisscom are accessible for free for all EPFL members. Swisscom provides for example hotspots in all major railway stations, like Lausanne CFF station. Very handy! The screenshot below shows how to configure the iPhone VPN.
