What is a VPN?

VPN is an acronym for Virtual Private Network, which is a method to create secured (encrypted) communications over a public network. In our case, we are setting up secured communications from your home PC to the University’s network via the Internet. This enables you to securely use your Cal Poly Pomona network resources that you access every day (file/printer sharing, email, etc.) from a location outside the University’s network.
