Beginning with the iOS 3.2 client, the user-agent string has changed. If user-agent restrictions are configured on the realm or role, certain iOS clients might have difficulties with logging in.
- The IVE administrator has configured user-agent restrictions on the realm or role to provide access, which is based on the client being used.
- The restriction was in the form of JunosPulse iPad or JunosPulse iPhone.
- After upgrading the client, users are prevented from connecting successfully.
Starting with Pulse 3.2 on iOS, the client software version is included in the user-agent string.
