K-State VPN Software

Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the technology that allows users to gain remote access to campus resources in a secure manner over the Internet. It provides a secure "tunnel" between your computer and the VPN on campus by using encryption and authentication. This is particularly helpful when connecting to the Internet using unsecured networks and public WiFi locations like airports, hotels, or coffee shops.

Using the VPN, any K-State student or employee with a valid eID can:

  • Access the university's network resources in a secure manner over a public network (Internet).
  • Access all campus resources that are restricted with K-State's IP address range (129.130.x.x).

Getting VPN Software

  1. It is important to read the VPN FAQs first.
  2. You must be a K-State student or employee and have an active K-State eID.
  3. You must have an Internet connection.
  4. Download the VPN client and follow the installation instructions for your operating system.
