Using VPN (Virtual Private Network) software to Connect to UD
The University of Delaware allows you to use Virtual Private Network (VPN) client software to log in to UD resources usually restricted to on-campus use from off campus. VPN access is also required for access to certain UD business systems from off campus or from an unsecured wireless network.
VPN software allows you to establish a secure, point-to-point connection over the Internet, in essence letting you connect to UDelNet as if you were on campus.
The University supports use of Cisco's AnyConnect VPN client to connect to the UD network.
- For information about the desktop version of AnyConnect, refer to IT's download and usage pages. Pre-configured versions of AnyConnect are available for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems on UDeploy.
- For information about the mobile version of AnyConnect, refer to IT's mobile page. Versions are available for iOS, Android, and Kindle devices.
The UDeploy server from which you download AnyConnect and
some of the VPN documentation will require you to log in
with your UDelNet ID and UDelNet password.
