Need for VPN Services in MCECS

Unless you are on a supported (Tier 1 or 2) desktop, 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. VPNs are necessary if you are connecting to many MCECS resources from off-site. You will need to use the VPN even if you are connecting from PSU Wi-Fi (as that network is still considered “external”).
