VPN (Virtual Private Network)
The VPN is used to securely access on-campus resources as though you were directly attached to the CMU network.

Getting Started
 The Cisco AnyConnect VPN client supports the following operating systems:
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8
  • Mac OS X 
  • Some Linux distributions
A group name/password and a global ID/password are required to connect to the VPN.

For installation on Windows systems, visit the Software Download Center to download the AnyConnect client.

  • If your Global ID begins with A-M, use sg2.cmich.edu for the server address after installation.
  • If your Global ID begins with N-Z, use sg3.cmich.edu for the server address after installation.

For Mac OS X systems, configure the VPN under System Preferences/Network.  Create a new VPN network interface with Cisco IPSEC.  Use sg2.cmich.edu for the server address and your CMU Global ID and password for the Account Name and Password.
