VPN Information

  1. Establish a Virtual Private Network (VPN) by entering “vpn.iu.edu” in the address bar of your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc).
  2. Enter your IU username and passphrase, then click “Sign In.”
  3. You may be prompted to install a Java applet the first time you use this.
  4. Accept the certificate and the connection process will finish.

For complete details, review this University Information Technology Services (UITS) Knowledge Base entry titled The Basics of VPN at IU.

UITS recommends connecting to these resources without a VPN connection especially when there is a high volume of staff working from home (WFH).

For an additional layer of security, a few UITS services require the use of VPN:

  • Remote Desktop from your personal device
    • Ensure username is ads\your_IU_user_name
  • WCMS
