Introduction

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a method of securing communications between your computer and another network.

It helps not only hide passwords from an eavesdropper, but also provides a degree of privacy, since it hides the content of your data.

Why is a VPN useful?

A VPN is particularly useful if you access the University network from home, a business trip, a conference or other non-work location using the public internet, or from the University wireless network.

It may also provide access to University resources normally inaccessible from outside of the University's network.

Pre-requisites

  1. Ensure your device has an active internet connection via a wired or wireless network.
  2. Register for the VPN Service
  3. Set up a VPN client on your device and connect
