Overview of VPNs
(Virtual Private Networks)
CCRI is offering VPN connections to enable secure access to CCRI’s network. A VPN is a virtual private network which creates an encrypted tunnel from the user’s computer to their organization’s resources.
You can connect to CCRI’s network using the Cisco AnyConnect Client VPN.
This VPN creates a secure connection that will create a desktop environment that is closer to your on-campus experience. You will be able to map a drive to your department share and use applications that interact with on-campus servers. The client installation does require administrative rights on the computer being used to establish the connection.
