For those that are interested in using the VPN service, please download the software from \\winsww\sww\public\vpnclient\vpn403f.
Once you install, you will have several pre-set profiles to choose from, “UCB-split”, and “EECS” among them.
To install, copy the vpn403f directory to your local drive and run setup.exe, then reboot the system. After reboot, go to C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client and launch the vpngui.exe to open the VPN Client window. In the VPN Client window, highlight the connection entry you wish to use. You can set this as the default connection entry from the “Connection Entries” pull-down. Click “connect” and use the appropriate authentication credentials for the profile.
If you have a Calnet ID, we strongly recommend that for now you use the “UCB-split” profile. This will get you an UCB IP address. This service is in production and supported by the campus (http://www.net.berkeley.edu/vpn).
If you select the “EECS” profile, you will need to use your EECS Windows account and password to authenticate. Once connected, you will get an EECS IP address, and will be treated as if you are on the EECS network. However, we know certain subset of EECS users with accounts migrated from old NT domains will NOT work correctly all the time. If you encountered problems logging in, please switch back to the “UCB-Split” connection. There are many technical difficulties in setting the EECS service up, so once we have a better solution, we will let everyone know.
Please note that the campus (and EECS) vpn service will NOT work while you are physically on campus.
For those users that use non-Windows platform, you can download the campus VPN software directly from http://www.net.berkeley.edu/vpn. These will not have the EECS profile, and once we have tested them, we will make them available on our local software distribution.
