Introduction to Remote Access (Faculty/Staff)
William Paterson University provides a VPN option for remote access into its computing and network environment.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) access is a form of remote access. Providing that you have a fast enough connection to the University's network through a commercial ISP then you can access any data and applications the same way you do from your office at the University. The VPN software authenticates you as a valid WPUNJ node and in addition it will encrypt all your data enhancing your data transmission security. Check your local ISP for Cable or DLS modem services.
