Networks and Policies

After Open Mobile is installed, it works in the background with Windows to connect you to hundreds of thousands of iPass hotspots around the world. Simply connect to an iPass Wi-Fi hotspot using Windows 8, and iPass will authenticate you in the background.

Configuring Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is enabled by default and can be disabled by unchecking the box next to Enable Wi-Fi.

To assign directories to this profile, select each one from the Available Lists (on the left), and click the right arrow (>) button to add them to the Assigned Lists (on the right). You can add iPass and custom directories. When you are finished, click Save.

Even though OpenAccess and iPass Inflight directories may be listed as available, some of these networks may not work. The availability of a network will vary according to service provider.

Authentication Settings

After network lists have been assigned, authentication format overrides can be applied by clicking Authentication Settings above the Assigned Lists. Accounts are generally assigned to an entire profile, and connections made using the account will use the authorization format defined for the account. However, accounts can be assigned for directories. Any authorization formats assigned to such accounts will override the more general one.

Hotspot Finder

iPass provides a Wi-Fi hotspot finder at:

There is an option to configure the Hotspot Finder but this feature is not currently available for Open Mobile for Windows Phone.
