== What is VPN? ==
 
 
 
'''VPN''' stands for Virtual Private Network; see the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network Wikipedia article on VPN] for more general info. Active faculty, staff and students can request permission to use VPN to access resources on the Middlebury network that are [[Resources_Requiring_VPN_For_Off_Campus_Access|normally unavailable from off campus]], such as Banner Admin or fast connections to Middfiles. [[Off_Campus_Access#Off-campus_Access_via_EZproxy|(Access to library subscription e-resources is the '''major exception'''. That requires EZproxy and is described here.)]]
 
 
 
Our former VPN client called Pulse Secure is being retired soon. (The legacy client installer files for Mac and Windows can be found in the [https://middleburycollege.sharepoint.com/:f:/r/sites/ITSSoftwareDistribution/Shared%20Documents/VPN%20Clients%20-%20Pulse%20Secure?csf=1&e=SxylOq VPN Clients - Pulse Secure] folder on SharePoint.)
 
 
 
&nbsp;
 
 
 
== When do I have to use VPN? ==
 
 
 
Please refer to this list of [[Resources_Requiring_VPN_for_Off-campus_Access|resources that require VPN]] to access them from off campus. Some examples include Banner9, Remote Desktop, and ArcGIS.
 
 
 
&nbsp;
 
 
 
 
 
== Troubleshooting GlobalProtect ==
 
 
 
We are currently working on documenting frequent issues and questions around GlobalProtect. Please see our [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uIxF5RaZPPvdchDTm0Zt9voq75hucc3-6sdtxLJQy70/edit#heading=h.l26udlork5us FAQs section of the detailed documention] for some common questions and their solutions. This documentation is a work-in-progress!
