VPN allows you to remotely access College resources that are not accessible outside the Corporate network.
VPN is an abbreviation for Virtual Private Network, which is a network that provides secure remote access to an enterprise network.
VPN Client software allows you to connect to the Red River College Polytechnic network from an off‑campus computer over the Internet using your College log on credentials. It also provides extra security by encrypting data to and from your computer.
RRC Polytech uses the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. The client should already be installed on your laptop.
You must already be connected to the Internet through an Internet Service Provider (such as Shaw, Bell, or Bell MTS) and have the Cisco Secure Client (formerly known as Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client) installed on your laptop. If both of these apply, click Cisco Secure Client in the system tray at the bottom right‑hand corner of your taskbar, and then click Connect.
Log on to your College issued computer with your College log on credentials, and then click Access VPN with a non-College laptop..
