IMPORTANT: The VPN service is only available to staff at Linköping University. It is not available to students.

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a remote access technology used to create secure connections, so-called tunnels, between two points in an unsecured network such as the Internet.

When using VPN a tunnel is created between your computer ant LiU's network. All traffic that is destined for LiU is sent through the tunnel, and applications running at LiU see the computer as being connected to LiUs network.

Some applications require you to connect using VPN if you are not directly connected to LiU's network.

To use the VPN service:

  • The VPN service must be activated for your account. This is done automatically for all members of staff. If you suspect the service is not activated, please contact LiU's helpdesk for assistance.
  • Install the VPN client on your computer. Contact LiU's helpdesk for assistance, or locate a suitable guide.

For Mac OS, go to the following page vpn.liu.se  And install the client
