If you need to connect to UCInet from off campus, the Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the solution for you. The VPN allows you to securely connect to vital campus resources like the UCI Libraries and KFS (Kuali Financial System) by encrypting the information you are sending over the network, protecting your data. In addition, it enables authorized users to mount network file shares from off campus.
