VPN

A Virtual Private Network uses an existing Internet connection to establish a direct link to the campus network.
This is useful in obtaining network drives such as the H: drive.

Please note that the university only officially supports Windows and Mac Computers.

Setup (FortiClient)

Download link for Forticlient: "https://www.fortinet.com/support-and-training/support/product-downloads.html".

The instructions for either operating systems can be found at: Forticlient VPN Setup.

If you are using a University of Akron owned computer, FortiClient should already be installed. If it is not, please bring your computer on campus and connect it to the network with a hard-wired connection.
