A VPN (Virtual Private Network) extends a private network across a public network to establish a secure link between your computer and the University.
Cisco AnyConnect is the VPN software currently available to staff and students.
This software is required to access:
- If you are off-campus and want to connect to
- some parts of the Griffith Portal website
- personal files stored on the Griffith file servers accessible via the Network storage
Changes coming early 2020
A project is currently underway to replace the existing VPN software early-mid 2020.
