These instructions do not work. However, I found a different way to connect to the Yale VPN on an Android device. What you need to do is download and install the Cisco AnyConnect app. Then simply add a new network with the server address "access.yale.edu" (no quotes). These are the same instructions as found here: http://its.yale.edu/services/internet-phones-and-television/campus-acces... (Under "VPN Clients Available at Yale", click "Cisco AnyConnect" and then "Install and configure Cisco AnyConnect Client for your iPhone or iPad").

The instructions need to identify the versions of each mobile OS which they refer to.  The closest I could adapt these instructions still failed.

For CyanogenMod 11 =  Android 4.4.4:

Before you begin, set a screen lock password.  It will refuse to connect to a VPN otherwise.  This may or may not be unique to CyanogenMod which is a security oriented version of Android. 

1. Go to "Settings",
2. Then to "Wireless and network settings"
3. Select "More..."
4. Select "VPN"
5. Hit the plus sign (+) at the top of the screen.

On the next screen, enter:

     1. Name: Yale (or whatever you want to call this VPN connection)

     2. Type: L2TP/IPSec PSK

     3. Server address:vpnwindows.yale.edu

     4. IPSec pre-shared key:legacy

Leave the other items in the screen blank.  The VPN name now appears under the VPN section of Wireless and Networks and you can select it to connect.   At this point, it will ask for a username and password and give you a check box to save them if you want to.  I tried both netID and yale\netID.  Neither worked. 

There is a Cisco AnyConnect app for Android but I have not tried it yet.
