6. Click "apply", and UiB VPN should be available.

Optional settings (saving time):

1. Mark "show VPN status in menu bar" and you have easy access to the VPN connection via the menu bar.
2. Under "Authentication settings..." you may type your paaaword to be remembered, to save the time of doing this later. But this is not recommended if the computer may be accessible with the same logon for others. 3. Click "Apply" when you are finished.
