Can I use the FSU Virtual Private Network without downloading VPN software?

To initiate an SSL-encrypted session using an Internet browser:

  1. Navigate to the appropriate VPN site profile:
  2. Sign in with your FSUID and password
  3. Go to either the Home or Web Applications sections
  4. Enter the URL in the address field
  5. Select https:// or http:// from the drop-down
  6. Click Browse

However, this browser-based option will only allow access to internal FSU sites and system hosted on-campus. Furthermore, while in some instances this option is better suited for remote desktop/ssh from the web browser, use of the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is recommended for less restrictive site access.
