Password: your SUNet ID password
Group Name: Stanford (Note the capital S)
Secret: (call 5-HELP and ask for the VPN shared secret key)
- Tap the Save button in the upper-right corner of the screen to return to the VPN selection screen. Your new configuration should be selected by default; if more than one configuration exists, you may need to tap the new entry for Stanford to select it.

You can return to the Settings screen and tap the switch again to disable the VPN.
