The Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a private computer network that interconnects remote networks through the Internet. The Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client is required for DU staff and faculty that need access to DU’s network for specialized DU applications that are not available off-campus. The client is also used by some students, such as those in NSM/GIS, who have requirements to reach protected DU network resources that are not available from off campus. Only faculty/staff and students in select departments have access to the VPN.
Please note that the VPN is not required to access library databases remotely. The library uses a proxy system and you will automatically be asked to login with your DU ID and passcode when accessing library resources from off-campus. Faculty and staff using the VPN to reach networked resources do not need to login again to a library resource if they have already logged into the VPN.
The VPN client is supported by University Technology Services and more information on this client can be found at http://www.du.edu/uts/helpdesk/docs/networking/vpn/.
If you experience difficulties accessing library databases remotely, please contact the Research Center at (303) 871-2905 or email email@example.com.
