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.

Setup (FortiClient)

Download link for Forticlient: https://www.forticlient.com/downloads

The instructions for any operating system (Windows, Mac, and Linux) 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.
