IT service :: VPN

The VPN is a technology that enables a computer to virtually log into a remote network in order to use services of the remote network that are not available externally. It is also possible to integrate a private computer in the department via one of the LAN sockets via VPN's network in order to be able to work with it. The VPN service of the department was discontinued at the beginning of April 2013 due to known security problems of the PPTP protocol and is only available to a small group of users who can provide good reasons for this.As a replacement solution for the VPN, ZEDAT AnyConnect from Cisco has been available since January 2013. Users of mobile devices should prefer to use eduroam.
