VPN is not necessary for Remote Desktop Connections to Windows PCs from off campus. When using Remote Desktop, simply configure the connection to use TTU's RDP Gateway Search askIT for detailed instructions on configuring Microsoft Remote Desktop connections.


NOTE: The TTUnet VPN service provides a secure tunnel to the TTU network only; it is not intended to be a commercial VPN service for the purposes of encrypting all of your Internet communications. Network communications from your computer/device to non-TTU services will not be sent through the VPN connection.



A TTUnet VPN connection enables you to send and receive data from a non-TTU network as if your computing device was directly connected to the TTUnet network. This allows access to protected TTU resources from a remote location.

Most IT services do not require a VPN connection. Examples of resources that may require VPN include:

  • Banner Admin
  • Apple Remote Desktop
  • Network print shares
  • Network file shares (e.g. MyWeb site admin access and TechShare)
  • KMS software activation
  • CMSDEV (Omni CMS development site)
