Android APN set-up guide

There are two ways to configure an Android device to work with the Eseye APN:

  1. Replace the existing apns-conf.xml file
  2. Use the graphic interface to alter the APN details

Replacing the apns-conf.xml file

Use the file titled anps-conf.xml located below or at: https://eseye.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/360000725293/apns-conf.xml.

This file requires root access, for more details see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooting_(Android)

Use the command adb push apns-conf.xml /etc to upload the file via adb, for more details see: http://adbshell.com/commands/adb-push to the /etc folder.

Use the graphic interface to alter the APN details

The Android system that this has been tested and screenshots are used from is: Samsung Galaxy S5 Android version 6.0.1

Step 1:

Navigate to the “Mobile networks” settings page.

You can do this by long pressing on “Mobile data” icon in the quick settings drop down menu (available from any screen).

-OR-

By using the menu string “Settings” “More Networks” > “Mobile networks”.

Step 2:

Enable “Mobile Data” and “Data roaming” and then press on “Access Point Names”.

This will list a number of Access Point Names that Android has pre-loaded in its database.

As we use a custom Private APN, you will need to add a new one by pressing on the “+” sign in the top right corner.

Step 3:

Enter in the following details for the new APN:

APN: eseye.com

Username: Android – (This can be anything you like, as long as it is not blank)

Password: pass

Authentication type: PAP or CHAP

All other fields can be left at their default values or removed so that they show “Not set”.

 

Step 4:

Press on the 3 dots in the top right corner and “Save”.

This may take a while to authenticate, but very soon you will see the data icon in the status bar to show that you are now connected to mobile data.
