VPN Update

ISU IT Services updated the campus VPN service on Tuesday, July 6th. If you already have VPN installed on your computer, you'll be asked to download and install an Active X update the next time you start VPN. Once the new Active X control is installed, VPN should function normally.

You can update at any time by starting VPN (Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client) on your computer. If you're not currently using VPN, you won't need to do anything.

VPN stands for Virtual Private Networking and can be useful for accessing email while traveling and accessing network drives when you're not in the office. It provides additional security when you're not on the IASTATE network for traffic back to the ISU campus. You can install VPN on any computer by going to vpn.iastate.edu

If you have questions or issues, you can contact the Extension Computer Support Hotline at 515-294-1725 or eithotline@iastate.edu
