Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Virtual Private Networking (VPN) allows you to connect to the Gallaudet University network from off-campus using the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of your choice. Certain network services at Gallaudet University can only be accessed from an on-campus computer. VPN creates a "virtual" network connection to Gallaudet University. Although you are off campus, it appears that you are connecting from the campus. This allows you to securely access Gallaudet University network resources when using your ISP, staying at a hotel, or working from another location.
These instructions explain how to configure a virtual private network on your computer for a direct connection to the Gallaudet University network.
