A Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a secure, encrypted connection between a remote Windows or Mac computer and the Seattle University internal network. It allows access to specific secure internal systems or data that is not accessible directly from the Internet. It also includes access to your P: and T: drive file shares but you must configure the mapped drive each time you connect over VPN. The Virtual Private Network is available for all Seattle University students, faculty, staff, and vendors.*
*Access for vendors is granted on a case-by-case bases. Please contact the Help Desk at (206) 296-5571 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request access.
The VPN software, called the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, is supported on Windows and Apple Mac OS X computers. It is very important to follow the step-by-step instructions in the Software Setup Guide when installing the VPN software on your computer.
