VPN Client for Linux
Dartmouth uses Big-IP Edge Client for VPN access. On a Windows or Mac OS X computer, that requires software be installed on the computer before the VPN connection is tried.
On a Linux computer, VPN access is provided via a Big-IP Edge web-based plugin. Open a browser and enter https://login.vpn.dartmouth.edu/ in the URL field.
However, many resources on the Dartmouth network do not need the VPN client for access. If the system you are trying to access is a web-based resource (such as Library resources), you can start a web-browser and go to https://webgateway.dartmouth.edu/ to access the website you need, rather than launching a Big-IP Edge web-based plugin.
Remove previous Linux VPN clients such as Juniper Network and Network Connect clients.
Linux web-based plugin URL
The Big-IP Client needs to be configured in such a way that describes to the server the type of connection you are using. Most people connect to: https://login.vpn.dartmouth.edu/. This URL needs to be entered in the browser URL field.
If you have a need to connect to the VPN using Duo, or need to connect from a device on the DHMC network, use the appropriate URLs.
- If you need to use Dartmouth's VPN while connected to the DHMC network, enter https://login-split.vpn.dartmouth.edu/
- If you need to use Duo for authentication, enter https://duo.vpn.dartmouth.edu/
- If you need to use Duo for authentication while connected to the DHMC network, enter https://duo-split.vpn.dartmouth.edu/
