What is a VPN?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) uses any Internet connection to provide remote or roaming users to a central organization’s network. In our case, the VPN allows you to connect to the CSU Engineering network from your home or any other Internet connection, and allows your computer to act as if it were a part of the physical Engineering network. This allows you to access Engineering resources that you normally would have to be physically on campus to access.

When should I use a VPN?

Do use a VPN connection when you are not connected to an on-campus network, and you want to access campus resources.

Do not use a VPN connection when you are connected to an on-campus (wired or wireless) network. This can cause problems with your connection.
