Something About VPN Connection
You can access university network from home via VPN (Virtual Private Network). This connection offers users a secure and encrypted data connection to the university.
When using this connection you have to authentify yourself by using a VPN client. User-ID and password are the same you need for all other services of ZIM (e.g. Webmail, Moodle, Wlan, Wusel etc.)
In addition to this your computer belongs to the university network and gets an IP address from there. For that, you can use internal services, such as databases of university library, access to licensed software etc.
Using Web-Based VPN
Web-based VPN offers a secure and encrypted access for surfing within the university network and operates the same way as Webmail while using an internet browser.
Adress of web-based VPN service: vpn.uni-wuppertal.de
