Virtual Private Network (VPN)


Dartmouth uses two VPN systems: F5's Big-IP VPN system for establishing VPN tunnels, and Juniper's Secure Access Service (webgateway) for establishing secure connections that only require a web browser connection. (This web-based system is most reliably accessed by using the Firefox web browser. Safari and Chrome have had mixed results and are not recommended.)

Go to to access common Dartmouth web-based applications via a secure connection without establishing a VPN tunnel.

See the appropriate link below for information regarding a VPN tunnel for all connections:
