IT Remote Access Policy

Information Technology provides and supports VPN (Virtual Private Network) access to the internal on-campus Emerson network for the faculty and staff of Emerson College. Instructions on how to setup a VPN connection are here. IT does not allow VPN access for students or alumni.

IT currently only supports using the VPN to access internal systems like Banner and Cabinet using either Mac OS X's built-in "Cisco IPSec" VPN connection or the cross-platform standalone client "GlobalProtect" provided by Palo Alto Networks. For security reasons, IT discourages and does not support remote access to office desktop systems.
