Connecting to the ANU VPN service
- ANU provides the GP VPN (Global Protect Virtual Private Network) for users to remotely access a range of ANU and RSB internal services (websites, fileshares, print services), when off campus, or on campus using ANU Secure wifi, and not connected with an ethernet cable.
- GlobalProtect (GP) is compatable with Windows, Mac, and some Linux operating systems.
- Some sites (e.g. https://intranet.biology.anu.edu.au/, or https://anulib.anu.edu.au ) are best accessed through virtual.anu.edu.au from off-campus.
PLEASE NOTE: Cisco AnyConnect was decommissioned 17 July 2020.
Please switch to Global Protect and contact RSB IT if you experience any access problems.
