TIP OF THE WEEK

By Massimo

Remote Access Using VPN

Remote access to the CCMST computers is now available only through the Virtual Private Network (VPN) campus service. The VPN provides off campus access to services that are available while on campus, including connectivity to the CCMST clusters. anyone with a GT account can use the VPN.

If you are not familiar with the campus VPN, a good place to start is the OIT VPN web page: http://www.oit.gatech.edu/service/vpn/vpn-service-remote-access. There you can find info on the service and on how to install VPN client software for the most common operating systems. Please check out the What to Expect page for a list of best practices and general information about the service.

If you need a light VPN connection (for instance need only web services) you can try the Clientless SSL VPN service. This service does not require the installation of client software, and has the advantage of not interfering with your local network connection, as only the web browser tabs open to the VPN server are tunneled through the campus VPN.

Do you have usage tips that you want to share with the other CCMST users? Please send them to Massimo (massimo.malagoli@chemistry.gatech.edu) for inclusion in the Tip of the Week section.
