VPN Update

Last week we updated on-campus, on-domain PCs to use the new VPN server. Notably, the new VPN server supports Windows 10 and OSX Yosemite.

On  September 22 at 6 AM, we are going to switch everyone over to using the new VPN. From that point forward, you will be using the new hardware when you go to vpn.mtu.edu.

Documentation on installation and usage of the new VPN client is available at www.it.mtu.edu/vpn.

If you have any issues, please contact IT at it-help@mtu.edu or 906-487-1111.
