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  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 Windows systems, open a web browser and go to https://sg2.cmich.edu.  Log in with your CMU Global ID and it will try to install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client.

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.
