Virtual Private Network (VPN)

  • The following web page contains information about the Virtual Private Network (VPN) and instructions on how to connect to the VPN.

    The Virtual Private Network uses the Internet to provide users with secure access to the university’s network. This allows users to access university resources while physically disconnected from the university network.

    Note: The VPN is for use off-campus. You will not be able to connect to the VPN while connected to IUP’s network.

    The VPN must be used so you can access the following IUP services (note this list is not inclusive):

    • Access network resources like the project directory or your home directory
    • Access library resources (online catalogs, for example)
    • Access staging on the CMS
    • Access the LDAP service
    • Remote access to your office desktop (requires prior approval)
