Virtual Private Network (VPN)

About this service

IST provides a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service to the campus community to facilitate telecommuting and other access to campus-based network resources.

The VPN uses the public Internet to connect a remote computer, such as a home computer or a laptop, securely to the UWaterloo network. The underlying principle is to make the remote computer seem as if it were physically connected to the campus network.
