The Remote Access VPN (Virtual Private Network) service allows CalNet ID authenticated users to connect to the UC Berkeley network from outside of campus, as if they were on campus, and encrypts the information sent to the network.
Note: The Cisco VPN will no longer be available as of September 30, 2019. It is being replaced by a new service called bSecure Remote Access VPN, based on the GlobalProtect application from Palo Alto Networks. Go to bSecure Remote Access VPN site for more information and download instructions.
If you have admin access to your computer, you can download and install the software yourself: Download GlobalProtect Software.
