Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Connecting to the Ringling College VPN

Students, faculty, and staff can access the Ringling College network through a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Both Macintosh and Windows systems can use the VPN, which requires downloading a VPN client. Installing the client requires administrative privileges on the computer that will connect to the VPN.

Once the VPN client has been installed, future connections to the VPN do not require any further downloading. These instructions describe how to download and install the client, and then connect to the VPN.
