Using the Cisco VPN

For additional security, CSU, Chico uses a virtual private network that encrypts network traffic. Use of the VPN is required to access certain campus resources from the Wildcat Wireless service, but is not required for general browsing. It is, however, a good way to ensure that all of your communications when using the wireless service are properly secured.

To download and install the VPN client, please go to the Cisco VPN client download site.

(Note that guest accounts—usernames ending in "@cns"—do not have access to the Cisco VPN client download site. Guests who require the VPN client should contact the IT Support Services HelpDesk.)
