Connecting from On Campus:
This profile is available to all on campus users. It is primarily in place to secure data over the otherwise insecure wireless connection. If you wish that your internet traffic not be viewable to anyone nearby, use this connection.
Connecting from ResNet:
Accessible to all ResNet users including the residence halls, family housing, and ResNet administration. This connection is recommended for wireless users to secure all internet traffic that would otherwise be visible.
Assuming Cisco VPN is installed, open your Applications folder and double-click on VPN Client.
Choose the connection entry that applies to you, and click Connect.
A new window should appear asking for your username and password. Put in your CU Login Name and IdentiKey password, then click OK.
The VPN should now provide a secure, encrypted connection to the CU Network. You will know you are connected by the small lock to the left of the connection.
You can disconnect at anytime by clicking the Disconnect button in the VPN client.
