General Description of University of Tsukuba VPN Service
The firewall devices block accesses from outside our university to protect on-campus services and web pages. VPN (Virtual Private Network) service transforms the accesses from outside into accesses inside the firewall virtually, so you can access the on-campus services and pages from off-campus networks by using the VPN service.
From November 2014, the VPN service started officially. The VPN service supports various OS and devices currently, and details are described below.
