VPN is an acronym for Virtual Private Network and is used to provide a means for users to connect their computers to the campus network from home or while traveling. This allows you to access your network drives without being on campus.
Once you are connected, you will see the icon, located in the system tray, that indicates connection. This icon, represented by the Cisco AnyConnect symbol and a gold lock, is outlined in red in the image below.
If you need help installing or connecting to your AnyConnect Secure Mobility client or mapping to Washburn network drives once connected, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call ext 3000.
