Geoscience Department VPN Access
In order to use the Geoscience Department VPN, which is separate from DoIT’s campus-wide VPN, you will need to request an account from either Ben or Patrick and have a demonstrated need for the access.
The Geoscience Department VPN grants you access to application license servers in order to use Matlab, COMSOL, and ArcGIS. It also allows you to ssh into computers in the building. Access to resources such as printers and Windows servers is available upon request as well, but is not included with the standard access.
Once access has been granted, you will need to go to vpn.wisc.edu, scroll down, and click on Geoscience (no. 12) as seen below:
Log in with your username and password, hit continue, and follow the instructions to install the Cisco AnyConnect client, which will connect you to our network. You will need to have Java installed for it to successfully install the client program.
