iPass on Unix/Linux
Though there is not a specific iPass client available for Unix/Linux platforms, you can use your iPass credentials to obtain Internet access at supported iPass Hotspots via a web browser.
You will need a /remote Kerberos instance to use iPass. If you do not already have such an instance and password, see our step-by-step instructions on how to create Kerberos instances using the Instance Manager.
To find an iPass Hotspot
Point a browser to http://www.ipass.com/mobilehotspot. Because this accesses an online directory of locations, you must have an Internet connection (Wi-Fi or cellular data) to access the function.
Logging into an iPass Hotspot via a web browser
To use your iPass credentials to obtain Internet access via a web browser, follow these steps:
- connect to a supported wireless network (SSID) at an iPass Hotspot (such as "attwifi")
- enter your username as "IPASSemail@example.com", where "your_userid" is your SCS
- for example, if your userid is "bovik", your iPass user ID would be: IPASSfirstname.lastname@example.org
- enter your /remote instance password
- select "Other" from the "Service Provider" drop-down list
- check the box next to "I agree...", then click the Log In/Connect button
