The University’s Campus VPN allows students, faculty and staff to connect to NC State’s campus network remotely and utilize network resources, such as on site computers, easily. However, when traveling to some destinations and while on restricted networks, it can be difficult to access NC State resources and partners; like Google.
For this reason, OIT now offers a Full Tunnel Campus VPN. The “full tunnel” is a term used to define how much traffic is secured and routed through your VPN. The traditional campus VPN only routes campus resources through it. The Full Tunnel VPN routes all requests through it, eliminating issues with access to GMail and other popular resources.
If you could benefit from this new service, you may request access to it using OIT’s Access Request Form. Once approved, you will see the full tunnel option listed when connecting to the campus VPN.
