ASU VPN is an installed, client based solution that creates a "virtual private network" or a secure connection/tunnel back to our campus network allowing off campus users access to on campus only resources. When installed, the ASU VPN client also gives you the capability to access your university computer from home. In order to use this system you are required to install the ASU VPN client, and authenticate with your Appalachian State University username and password.
