I'm looking for guidance on how to configure the VPN on Demand option on iPADs. Can someone possibly point me in the right direction - I can't find any documentation specific to the iOS client?

The requirement is to bring up the vpn for a very specific server within our organisation eg. The actual vpn appliance is on the same domain eg,

This used to be pretty straight forward in older versions of the client, but I can't seem to get the config right with the newer one.

Ultimately, we want to enable deployment of the configuration using our Sophos MDM platform, but at this stage I'm struggling to get the client to work doing manual configuration.

(Bringing up the client manually works fine, it's just the on demand element I'm struggling with)

There is some discussion of this in the Pulse Clients Administration Guide, which is here:

Search for "VPN on demand", and let us know how it goes.

The most efficient way is to configure the on-demand rules via your MDM provider. It is possible to configure it manually; however, the specifics are questions to work with Apple on in order to make sure the rules comply with the different OS VPN on demand rules
