Eastern Michigan University
A virtual private network (VPN) provides authorized employees with secure remote internet access to the campus network and systems either from a wireless connection on campus or from a location off campus. AnyConnect is the software used at EMU for VPN access.
Instructions to download and access the campus system through AnyConnect are available at http://www.emich.edu/training/webvpn/content/index.php. Instructions to access the EMU NT Shares (also known as common or shared drives) are also available there.
- While using the VPN, a computer is a member of the EMU internal network and subject to all the security policies of an on-campus computer. Security policies are available for review at http://it.emich.edu/policy.
- EMU reserves the right to scan a computer while connected to the VPN if a connection in any way represents a threat to the security or function of the university.
- The Division of Information Technology reserves the right to restrict VPN access to certain websites and web services in case of network load issues.
- An on-campus computer cannot be controlled with VPN from a remote location. It does not include remote control software like PC-Anywhere or GotoMyPC.
