Virtual Private Network

From which devices may I use the VPN?

From all desktop and mobile devices but each user can have only one active session at a time. Please read the specific configuration instructions for each used device.

What is the difference between the VPN connection and the VPN-OUT connection?

 

With both connections you can access the resources of the University. What changes is the management of internet traffic after the connection:


- with classic VPN internet traffic keeps coming out of your connection (ADSL, other university, public wifi...)


- with VPN-OUT all internet traffic comes out of a Unitn IP address (technically it's like you're browsing from a device in the University). This is useful for example to bypass the existing block in countries such as China towards some services (including Google Apps and Gmail)
