Connect to SFU's internal network remotely
Unlike commercial solutions, SFU Virtual Private Network (VPN) does NOT by-pass travel restrictions or re-route traffic. SFU VPN is a way for faculty, staff and graduate students to remotely connect to SFU's internal network using a secure (encrypted) and private connection. It also provides access to SFU systems that are typically inaccessible while working remotely.
Examples of using SFU VPN
SFU VPN enables:
- Secure access to departmental file servers (shared drives, Y: drives, shared staff folders, etc.)
- Remote access to on-campus printers.
- An encrypted way to access other resources that require an on-campus network connection to use.
SFU VPN does NOT bypass government or service restrictions
For instance, SFU VPN won't help you access websites blocked by national firewalls.
