Information Technology will be retiring the aging Cisco VPN system on campus after Summer II ends, in advance of the Fall 2012 semester. This system has reached its end-of-life and newer technology is available. Anyone still using this system is encouraged to uninstall the Cisco VPN software immediately and begin using the new system.
The new web-based system is from a company called SonicWALL, and is much easier to use. A small downloadable VPN client called NetExtender is available that allows the user to access secure resources that aren't web-based. Information about this system, including how to access it, how to install NetExtender, and common questions are available on the IT website: valpo.edu/it/current/vpn/
