A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure method of accessing University computing resources when you are logged in from an off–campus computer or a laptop you are using to access the Wireless Network. The VPN creates a secure connection called a tunnel between your computer and the campus network. The tunnel disguises the information you are sending and receiving, so your electronic communications are secure and protected.
If you need to connect a new printer, server, networked copier or other device to the network, you will need to request an IP Address. IP address is a number that is assigned to a computer by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to be its permanent address on the Internet. Computers and other connected devices use IP addresses to locate and talk to each other on the Internet, much the same way people use phone numbers to locate and talk to one another on the telephone
A server is a piece of hardware that stores electronic information such as department records, email messages, website documents and images.
