Connect to hotspots using iPass on iPod Touch

Now that I have an iPass account, and I got it working on my MacBook, next challenge was getting it going on the iPod, then I can listen to music and catch up on the news.

The basic process is the same as for using iPass on OSX, except that for the iPod client there's no domain field. So this time the fields look like
    UserName: domain.com/username
    Password: what the IT guys gave you

Some times you get your credentials in the form of an email address and password so this forms the basis of what you do.

After you've put in your credentials in iPass, save them.


Then go to the wireless control preference and connect to the hotspot

Go back to iPass, press 'Login' and after a few seconds you should be good to go. You'll know you're in if it says 'synchronising data'.

Thank you for this post as well--you are a great example of how to use iPass both on your laptop and smartphone device. We look forward to hearing more about how the iPass service works for you!
