The Library is now offering off-campus access to electronic resources through three methods, WebVPN, VPN and EZ-Proxy. WebVPN, works with both Mac and Windows, and is especially useful to hospital-based faculty and students because it can be used without having to put any additional software on the user’s computer and is compatible with institutional VPNs. While the Brown VPN necessitates installing client software it is, however, the most reliable method for remote authentication and is your best choice if you have a broadband Internet connection, via a cable modem or direct subscriber line (DSL). The Library would recommend to users to move to either the WebVPN or the VPN client as both are less problematic than the proxy.
If you should have problems with the VPN or the WebVPN itself, forward questions to the CIS Help Desk. If the problem is with a specific resource, you may send email to email@example.com.
