VPN service - Remote connection to university services.
Most University services can be accessed off-campus without restriction or by using the SVE service. A few services may require connection to the VPN service and applications are provided to auto-configure devices for VPN.
Why use this service?
The services for which connection to VPN is required include:
- File transfer to and from University filestore
- Software installation on University laptop computers
- Licence verification of locally installed software (Microsoft software in particular)
- Wireless printing
- Remote access to systems such as HPC and University desktop computers if the performance is not suitable when using SVE
