Remote Access (VPN)
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) enables you to remotely and securely connect to campus resources from anywhere. VPN securely encrypts data transmissions from your computer to the campus network. UW-Whitewater enables VPN access using Cisco Secure Client (formerly Cisco AnyConnect) VPN software. A valid campus net-id and password are required to gain access.
Access to web-based campus enterprise technology services such as Email, calendar, WINS, and the UW-Whitewater web site does not require the use of the VPN.
