Obtaining and installing the Cisco VPN Client

The VPN client can now be found in "My Akron Experience" under the Home use software downloads section of "My Akron Experience". The file may also be obtained from the ZipSupport Center. You will need a USB flash drive, or other portable media to which our support experts will copy the file.
