Web VPN: Web VPN Basics

A quick tutorial on using UCSD's web VPN

Web VPN Basics

The web VPN uses your active directory login when signing in - so no additional ID & password is required to use it.  The easy URL for it is simply,

One there, sign in and leave the setting as Easy Connect.

The next screen is an odd-looking one.  It is the web VPN home page.  In the box next to the http:// drop-down box enter the address you want - a database, a journal, an e-book, or other library resource.

Be sure to navigate using the web VPN tool bar and not via the browser's address bar.  Links within web pages are fine to use.
