Truman State University - VPN Documentation
Truman State University's virtual private network (VPN) is available to
students, faculty and staff to provide a secure network connection between your
off-site computer system and resources on the local Truman network.
You can use the VPN to connect to Truman network drives (like W: or Y:
drives), access the restricted library databases and connect to most other
Truman network resources when you are away from the Truman campus.
If you have any questions, please contact the ITS HelpDesk at 660-785-4544.
