- User requests for VPN Remote Access Service are initiated through the departmental IT Technical Liaison or designated system administrator and VPN is available only to faculty and staff.
- Departments determine who will be authorized for VPN Remote Access Service within their department.
- VPN Remote Access Service is authorized only after the IT Liaison or designated system administrator has confirmed that the user has reviewed the University’s VPN Service Policy, especially the requirements outlined in the Responsibility of Users section of the policy.
- Information Technology supports the VPN network device, the VPN client, a method for Systems Administrators to grant their users access to the VPN service through the ANSR registration process, documentation for installing the VPN client, and 24x7 system support.
