You will need to fill in the information in the open fields and create/upload a PLIST file for the remaining information.  You will need the following information from CatchOn:

  • the Plugin bundle
  • user name
  • Web Security Key

Using the above information from CatchOn follow the following instructions:

  • In Device Console go to Network Profiles and either click on the name of an existing profile or select Add to create a new profile. Screen_Shot_2022-04-07_at_1.46.08_PM.png
