With the help of a VPN (virtual private network), a secure subnet can be set up via an open, unprotected network (Internet, radio network), in which communication is protected against eavesdropping and access by third parties. Simply put, with the help of a VPN, devices scattered around the world can communicate with each other as if they were together in a room and connected directly with a cable.

If you use the university's VPN access, your computer receives an IP address of the university, which allows access from outside the campus to many services and programs, which otherwise can only be made available within the university campus. This includes, for example, direct access to data drives, printers and many library services.

Here you will find short instructions on how to correctly configure the VPN clients supplied by the operating system to use the university's VPN access.

Please understand if we are not able to offer a service via VPN for licensing reasons.

Bitte haben Sie Verständnis dafür, wenn wir aus lizenzrechtlichen Gründen mal einen Dienst nicht über VPN anbieten können.
