NOTE: In order to create a VPN connection you will need a previously configured internet connection under Windows 7. This tutorial assumes that you have an established connection.

Important things to know before you start:

  • YOU MUST ALREADY HAVE A CECS WINDOWS ACCOUNT TO USE THE VPN. Please see one of our front desks for an account if you're eligible.

Step 1: Start the “Network and Sharing Center”.

To do this, click on Start->Control Panel->Network and Internet->Network and Sharing Center

You will see a screen similar to this one:

Step 3: Choose “Use my Internet connection (VPN)” (as shown).

Step 5: Enter your CECS username (in the format CECS\username) and password, then click “Connect”. Click “Close” when connected.

Step 6: Under "View your active networks", click the link right below the connection that you just created. Choose a location where you will use the connection the most.

Once you have chosen a location, you may configure and connect/disconnect to the VPN via Network and Sharing Center
