Virtual Private Network

In order to guarantee users access to the data network (internet, intranet and not only), default connectivity services are available for the staff members stations, and on request for students and other users who want to access the network with personal devices. Ordinary access to the network - only possible for users with accounts of the type @ unitn.it - can be via cable (wired network) or wireless (choosing between multiple configurations modes). For the University’s impromptu guests, connectivity is offered through the Eduroam Federation (for guests coming from Universities or Research Institutions that belong to it) or by issuing temporary credentials (so-called Visiting accounts). This group of services also includes VPNs - Virtual Private Networks for managing external traffic to University network resources.

The VPN allows access to internal resources of the University network also from external networks.
