Using the VPN service
Once registered to use the VPN service, you can connect to the service by configuring a VPN client on your device.
Set up VPN access
VPN access is set up through the Cisco AnyConnect SSL client. AnyConnect uses the same protocols as are used for secure webpages and therefore is less likely to be blocked by the firewalls of remote ISPs. It is also less likely to suffer from disconnections caused by poor network performance.
Built-in VPN clients
Although the University recommends the AnyConnect client first, many devices also have a built-in VPN client you can use to connect.
