What is it

Some College ITS services need a secure connection between your off-campus computer and the college network. There are two ways to do this: with VPN or the Secure Portal; however, VPN is the preferred method. Note: Your N Drive is not available when using the secure portal, you must use VPN. 

The following are lists of what services need a secure connection.
