Virtual Private Networking

Virtual Private Networking (VPN) creates a secure connection between your own computer and the University network.

This gives you access to sites, systems and facilities which are limited to users who are on the University network. 

Access to E-resources

Setting up VPN

Using VPN

Whenever you wish to access Aberystwyth University resources you should:

  • connect to the Internet using your usual provider
  • open GlobalProtect VPN
  • Click Connect
  • Login

If you are connecting to VPN using an AU managed computer we recommend you connect to VPN BEFORE logging in. Filestore, shared drives and printers will then be mapped automatically at login.
