To connect to / disconnect from FHSU's VPN (Virtual Private Network):

  1. Whenever you wish to access your shared folders on an FHSU server from an off-campus location, you must connect to FHSU’s VPN (Virtual Private Network) first.
  2. Once you've created a VPN configuration, the option to turn VPN on or off appears in the main Settings screen. When you are connected, the VPN icon appears in the status bar.

Note:  Your VPN connection will automatically time out after 10 minutes of inactivity.  Additionally, you cannot save your password for automatic connection.  These are security measures and cannot be changed.
