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.

Troubleshooting

Error Codes

Nearly all Errors are caused by software firewalls blocking connections to the VPN server.

If you receive an "Error 619", try this:

  1. Click Start, then run.
  2. Type 'cmd' at the prompt
  3. A black box should open up, at this point type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.txt

Unable to Access Internet Once Connected

The cause of this issue has been found to be almost exclusive to a set of specifics. If the user is using the Cisco client, Time Warner/Road Runner Internet, and connecting their computer directly to the modem, you may experience this issue. Since this is a Time Warner issue and cannot be fixed by us, you should contact us and we can set you up with an alternative connection method. If you would like to try and set one of these up yourself, please use the Legacy or VPNC instructions.
