Security :: Virtual Private Network

Printer-friendly version

As part of the closed border firewall project, Humboldt State University deployed a Virtual Private Network (VPN) server. This ensures secure communications through a simple web interface for those staff and faculty members who use Remote Desktop or Virtual Network Computing (VNC) to connect to their office computers from off campus.

If you need to access applications on your office desktop and network resources beyond your Network Folder remotely, work with your ITC to configure your office computer appropriately and then follow these instructions to initiate and use the VPN connection. All you need on your remote computer is a browser; no special software is required.

If you only need to connect to your Network Folder to access files, we recommend you use SFTP rather than the VPN.
