Need to connect to the VPN to access restricted on-campus systems


Installing Cisco AnyConnect

The VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a network access service that permits remote systems to obtain a campus IP address and access the ND network as if they were locally connected. Certain restricted systems require a campus IP address for access.

Cisco AnyConnect is the recommended method to access the VPN. To install Cisco AnyConnect:

Note: Chrome OS, Windows RT and Windows Mobile do not support the VPN implementation used by Notre Dame at this time, which will limit the ability to access ND services from remote locations while using a Chromebook, other Chrome OS devices, Windows RT devices, and Windows Mobile phones. See Google's support page for additional information on supported VPN implementations.

Launching Cisco AnyConnect

After installing Cisco AnyConnect, you can connect to the VPN by launching the program and entering the server address

Mac: Open the program by going to Finder, Applications, Cisco, Cisco AnyConnect Mobility Client.

Windows:  Open the program by going to Start, Cisco, Cisco AnyConnect Mobility Client.

Then select Connect and respond to the login prompts that appear.

Note: If you are experiencing issues while using YubiKey when connecting to the vpn, see KB0017610
