VPN access for on-campus users is limited to use on the wireless network. The VPN is only required for users connected to the RHIT wireless network to enhance the security of the traffic sent via a wireless connection. Those users configured for the RHIT-1X wireless network do not need to run the VPN when connected.
The VPN is the preferred method to access servers and services while off campus. Many servers and services are configured to deny traffic from IP addresses not in the Rose-Hulman network (137.112.*.*).
