Access from Off Campus
In order to access these resources off campus, you will need to use either the web proxy (browser-based) or the VPN (downloaded software that covers all your computer applications or the browser-based one). For detailed instructions, click one of the following:
Easiest set up but may require extra step to get ID & password. Call ACMS if password is not working (see instruction page).
VPN: Virtual Private Network
Covers the entire computer and requires download and installation of software. Not difficult, just a few extra steps with the set up. Your active directory ID & password are needed for this one.
For those locations where adjusting settings or installing software is not an option. It is a little tricky to use and be sure you don't mistakenly slip out of the VPN.
Sign on with your active directory login and leave the setting for Easy Connect.
