Virtual Private Network (VPN)

by Dave Roback

ITS is planning deployment of a VPN for campus use.  A VPN is used for establishing a secure, encrypted connection to internal Hamilton computing resources from a remote computer on the Internet.

The VPN service will enable select campus users to remotely access some college resources which are not currently accessible via traditional Internet access methods from OFF CAMPUS.  Also, since it is much more secure, VPN will replace access to Windows and Mac PC's (from off campus) currently being done using Windows or Apple remote desktop.

The project is in the late stages of testing and will be ready for deployment by the end of the spring semester.  More information will be provided in upcoming newsletters on the status of the effort.
