When you're off-campus and not directly connected to the Rhodes network e.g. ADSL Internet from home, you will not be able to connect to certain network applications and services. In this case you will need to establish a VPN connection from your remote connection.
Rhodes' Virtual Private Network (VPN) server allows staff and students using a PC on the Internet (i.e. not on campus or connected to Rhodes' network directly) to virtually connect to the Rhodes network. The effect is that the PC becomes connected to the Rhodes network, and thus has full access to resources on the campus network.
Access to the VPN server is automatically granted to all staff at the University, and available to students via a Support Request based on need with an accompanying letter from the HOD. Below are the configuration instructions for your PC to make use of the VPN on an Apple Mac.
To remove the VPN configuration, select the VPN network connection service in the list and click Remove.
