Virtual Private Networking (VPN)

VPN is a networking technology that enables remote users to access corporate networks securely across various operating system platforms to connect securely to their corporate network through the Internet.

Choosing a VPN type (IPSec vs SSL vs L2TP)

BOL supports Cisco Anyconnect (SSL), Cisco IPSEC, L2TP on most operating systems. Any of these VPN types should allow you to access restricted UCLA Library resources and/or UCLA websites/services that have a VPN requirement or require that you be on the UCLA campus network. Please be advised that some networks may restrict access to the necessary ports required to use a specific VPN type. In those instances, users will want to try one of the other VPN types or contact their network administrators for further information.

BOL recommends that all users use the Cisco Anyconnect (SSL) VPN. Please see the following page for configuration instructions:
