The Cisco VPN is used to connect a computer not currently on campus to the campus network.  This permits access to network file shares, Banner, and other services only available when on campus.

VPN access is only available from off-campus locations. If you attempt to connect to the VPN while on campus and connected to a UNC Asheville network, the connection will fail.

When do you need VPN?

Please reference When do you need VPN? for a list of services that do or do not require a VPN connection.
