UC faculty and staff who need access to private or restricted areas on the UC network from off-campus locations will need to download and install new software before Fri. March 1.
The Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) allows authorized users access to private or restricted services on the UC network from off-campus locations. You will need to log into the VPN if you are off-campus and need access to a departmental file server or restricted service, for example.
IT@UC is pleased to announce a new software solution for the Virtual Private Network (VPN). Cisco AnyConnect will replace the Pulse Secure client and the web-based SSL VPN as the university's official VPN connection to UC's network from off-campus. AnyConnect brings the latest VPN technologies as well as an easier client installation process.
As with Pulse Secure, the AnyConnect VPN can be accessed either via the web or through a client application installed on a computer.
Visit vpn.uc.edu to access:
NOTE: Access to UC’s Network via the AnyConnect VPN is available off-campus only.
For how-to instructions, view the AnyConnect download and installation instructions in the IT@UC Knowledge Base.
The AnyConnect solution will become the official VPN solution for the university on Friday, March 1, 2019. Pulse Secure will no longer be available, and the sslvpn.uc.edu will redirect to vpn.uc.edu on Friday, March 1, 2019.
We encourage all students, faculty and staff who use VPN to make the switch to the new AnyConnect VPN prior to Friday, March 1, 2019, to take advantage of its new features and to avoid any disruption in service.
