Android APN set-up guide

This guide describes the process to set-up the Eseye APN on an Android phone. 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.
