VPN - access to the University of Akureyri local network

University of Akureyri staff and students can connect to the university local network through VPN (Virtual Private Network). By connecting to VPN users can access special subscriptions of the library, i.e. electronic resources (databases and e-journals) that are only accessible through the university local network.

All staff and students automatically receive access to the VPN. They use the same username and password as for their HA webmail to logon/connect to the VPN network. However it is necessary to create the VPN connection on each device one is using. In order to use the special library subscriptions/resources one has to logon the VPN and logout when one is finished.
