VPN off-campus access to online resources

In the past, lecturers and students at the University of Göttingen could only access e-media from off-campus via our HAN server.
From now on, you can also use e-media worldwide via the Virtual Private Network (VPN) of the GWDG.
The introduction of the GWDG Identity Management and adaptations to the VPN infrastructure of the GWDG were the prerequisites for this new service.

If you install a VPN client on your (mobile) computing device and connect to VPN, you receive an IP address which identifies you as a member of the University of Göttingen at the publishers and providers of licensed databases, electronic journals and e-books.
With VPN you can access e-media just as easily as from the university campus.
 
Technical information on VPN can be found on the GWDG website 'Setting up a VPN connection'.
 
Further information on accessing e-media from off-campus can be found at our web page 'Off-campus access to online resources'.
