Connecting to VPNΒΆ

After you have successfully connected, for further documentation and information please browse to

Remote access is handled in two steps.
  1. Connect to VPN (either WWU or CS)

  2. Connect to specific resource (most often via SSH)


Someone must have a Computer Science account to access the resources in the Computer Science Department. Other University users do not have access by default and must acquire access from the department.

The first step to connecting to the VPN is choosing which VPN you will be using.



Uses Universal Account

Uses CS Account

Still treated as external to the department

Treated as if access is from within CS Space

Operationally these two options are similar. If it is unclear which you should use, we suggest starting with the CSCI VPN and then if you have troubles with that you can try the University VPN.
