VPN – your home connection

With the implementation of the new firewall”, the method for connecting to the internet at home, has also changed. If you’re one of the lucky ones who can work from home, you can follow the instructions below and in no time your internet will be up and running again.

For step by step instructions for the installation of the new VPN client, click here. If you are currently using the Checkpoint VPN (you’ll see a yellow key in the corner of your pc’s screen) first follow these instructions before installing the client. Just remember, this installation will not work if it’s done from campus. You need to be outside the university’s network.

If you use NXInetkey without VPN from home, it will be deactivated from 1 April due to security reasons. Follow the same installation procedures as the VPN users and install the new client.

    As jy nogsteeds kan werk, is jou email heel waarskynlik opgestel vir normale https konneksie en is dit dus nie nodig om vpn te gebruik nie. VPN is net nodig vir mense wat toegang nodig het tot interne stelsel soos sun022.

    Ek gebruik die Telkom Internet vir tuisgebruik. My verbinding tuis sedert 1 April was nog nooit afgesny nie en ek het bloot vootgegaan met my werk. Is dit in orde so? of moet ek die VPN Internet volgens die instruksies aflaai. Groete, Handre Brand

    I am using ubuntu and where I previously just had to open inetkey to be able to ssh into servers on the network I understand that this has been stopped. So now I opened the FortiClient and connected, it says tunnel running (as status), but I am not able to ssh into servers on the network.

    My attempts all just time out.

    I hope to get a quick response.
    Thank you.
