VPN Connection - Android and Linux

St. Olaf IT maintains a virtual private network (VPN) for use by college faculty, staff and students. A VPN allows computers off campus (e.g. at your home) to securely connect to the St. Olaf network and function as if it was on campus. It allows access to server files and applications that are restricted to on campus users. Please note that library resources do not require VPN.
