iPass Open Mobile Client

The Open Mobile Client is an always-on client that runs on Windows, Macs, iPhones, iPads and Android devices. You can use this client to connect to iPass capable and non-iPass capable wired, wireless, 3G, 4G, and Dial-up networks while traveling. Please do not use the client in Pittsburgh except for testing the client. Please do not use the Open Mobile client to connect to home networks and free wireless networks in Pittsburgh including the CMU wireless network.

Login with the Open Mobile client is the same as with iPassConnect, use your /remote instance and password.

Scroll down and tap the Clear Defaults button. Then try tapping the activation link from the downloads page again.


      2. Email yourself the link in html format, and then tap the link from the email on your device and select Open Mobile when prompted for which application to open it with.
