Having Trouble Connecting to software off campus?

You can use any laptop or desktop to connect to Lawrence Tech’s network resources from off campus by using the Lawrence Tech VPN (Virtual Private Network) Service. The VPN that we use is called Global Protect. Lawrence Tech’s VPN service allows University faculty, staff and students to securely “tunnel” in and access network resources as if they were on campus. The resources affected by this are in this pdf.
