This article explains how to connect your Windows PC or laptop to the University VPN.
These instructions detail how to connect to the University VPN and have been tested on a Windows 7 machine. They show how to connect to the University VPN when off campus.
Open a web browser and go to the https://gp.vpn.port.ac.uk/global-protect/login.esp website.
Login with your university username and password, e.g. bloggsj or up123456 via the window shown in Figure 1.
Another window will appear as shown in Figure 2. Select the appropriate download for your operating system, i.e. Windows 32 or 64-bit. (How can I tell if my computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows?)
Once the file has downloaded run the program to install the software accepting the default settings.
