UCL Virtual Private Network (VPN)

The UCL Remote Access VPN Service provides a resilient, secure means of accessing private UCL corporate central services from off-site locations.

** Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan**
We have identified an issue with connecting to the Remote Access VPN Service when running Sophos 9.2 on Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), 10.10 (Yosemite) and 10.11 (El Capitan). We have replicated this issue and have a ticket open with our external support company. We are working with them to resolve it.

What can I access?

Services that can be accessed whilst connected to the UCL Remote Access VPN service, that are not otherwise available for access from outside UCL, include:

  • MyView (HR system)
  • MyFinance (UCL Finance system)
  • ISD central filestore
  • UCL Microsoft Key Management Server
  • ¬†Management Systems Database Servers
  • UCL Desktop data/applications
