VPN connection to DTU network
In order to connect to the network inside DTU from a remote location, you may use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection to the DTU network routers.
VPN login will permit you to access DTU's central administrative systems, and possibly selected services in your department network, if configured by your department's IT service. Contact your department IT service for further information.
The DTU Cisco routers have a service for which you need to install the Cisco AnyConnect_client on your remote computer.
The simple usage instructions are:
- Go to the web-page https://vpn.ait.dtu.dk.
- Log in with your DTU initials.
- Select the icon AnyConnect and press Start to install the AnyConnect_client software on your PC.
Now you are connected to your department's dedicated VPN subnet within the Cisco router. Please note that this is not the department internal network, but a special VPN subnet within the Cisco routers.
Try the automatic installation first:
- If it continues to ask for your DTU password, quit your browser and start again.
- If the automatic installation fails, it will give you the option of downloading and installing manually. Download the disk image and install by double-clicking on the package. It will install to a Cisco subfolder of your normal Applications folder, and the client will not be configured. First time you use it, type the address vpn.ait.dtu.dk manually.
Then it should work!
Cisco doesn't seem to offer AnyConnect software for Linux.
yum install epel-release yum install openconnect
Linux users may alternatively try to use the OpenConnect VPN software available from http://www.infradead.org/openconnect/connecting.html. For Fedora Linux the relevant RPM is NetworkManager-openconnect.
Usage instructions: To be written.
Linux machines should use the packages vpnc og openconnect. The command to start a VPN tunnel is:
sudo openconnect -s /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script vpn.ait.dtu.dk
See this VPN installation - Linux page.
