VPN Services in MCECS

Remote access to many MCECS network services (Windows file services, Remote Desktop, Print Services,  some Linux hosts) require the use of a VPN (Virtual Private Network).  The use of the VPN also provides the added benefit of an encrypted connection so that your data from your computer to MCECS systems is more secure.  You will need to use the VPN even if you are connecting from PSU WiFi (as that network is still considered “external”).

TheCAT provides OpenVPN access to all MCECS users.  You must use your MCECS Account to authenticate to OpenVPN.
