VPN

The Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides end-to-end secure access between an off-campus computer and on-campus resources.

About

All WPI faculty, staff and students may use the VPN. All traffic is routed through the WPI network via a secure encrypted tunnel. This allows secure access to on-campus systems, as well as protecting against insecure network connections such as unencrypted public WiFi. The system accessing on-campus resources using VPN must meet specific requirements for Windows, Macintosh OS X, and Linux devices.
