VPN Connection

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection provides a secure encrypted tunnel from your computer to UHCL's network when off campus.  UHCL offers VPN software to allow authenticated, secure access to many UHCL resources from home.  In order to utilize this service you must have:

A broadband connection.   Downloaded and installed our VPN client (for Linux users) from the Download page.   Note:  Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP users can use the built-in VPN tools without downloading the Cisco client software.  The Cisco VPN client software is no longer offered for those operating systems.   Configure the client or connection according to instruction found from the links below.

For Windows XP
For Windows Vista (32 and 64-bit)
