How can I use VPN? (Installation and operation)
CISCO SSL VPN Client (AnyConnect)
The current client can be installed directly via the web portal vpn.uni-ak.ac.at. (Validation with a valid UNIAK account – for employees: p number, students: s matriculation number). Available for the following platforms: Windows (32-bit and 64-bit), Linux, Mac OS X.
The AnyConnect client requires the VPN server name vpn.uni-ak.ac.at, as well as the account name and password. The UserID is the personal number for employees and the matriculation number for students.
After logging in, you can choose between three profiles:
- UNI-AK: The whole data traffic is routed through the VPN tunnel
- UNI-AK (Split-Tunneling): Only the data traffic to the applied person is routed through the VPN tunnel
- ZID_UNI-AK: VPN Access for ZID Employees
All other configuration settings and client updates are automatically obtained from the VPN server vpn.uni-ak.ac.at.
