Configuring Android devices for off-campus access

*** For security purposes remote access from any portable device is restricted to terminal services mode.  No company data is allowed to leave the server, remote printing is prohibited, and no local drive/USB redirection is permitted during your session. ***

The setup and installation is broken down into three parts

  • Installation (both Checkpoint Mobile VPN & 2X Client)
  • Configuration
  • Connection

Installation (Checkpoint Mobile VPN and 2X Client)

1.  To connect to the DENSO network from an Android device you will need two apps from Google Play.  The first of which is required, the second is your choice.  As with any mobile application, it becomes more of a personal preference as to which one you choose.  We will recommend one that is tested and approved, but you are not limited to using the app we recommend.  However if you use an app that is one other than what we recommend, we will not support it so use at your own risk.  Download and install the following.

5.   You have now completed the necessary configuration to connect to the DENSO Terminal Server.




The connect process is a two step process.  First is the VPN that connects your Android device to DENSO, and second the remote desktop application which connects you to the terminal server.  This process needs to happen each time you want to connect to DENSO.


Step 1


1.  From the home screen of your Android device, touch the Capsule VPN app Android RDP 12.

In the screenshot below fill in the fields with your network userid, RSA 4 digit PIN, and RSA SecurID tokencode.  Click Connect.

2.  Touch the “DENSO” alias.

4.  If you entered your password correctly you will be logged into the terminal server and can now begin working.


If you are having trouble finding the on screen keyboard, touch the keyboard button at the top.

5.  Be sure to logoff your remote session when you are done.  This can be completed by clicking Start -> Logoff.
