Connecting to the VPN

Some of your work will require you to connect to the Martin Luther College network here on campus and in order to accomplish that, your machine will need to initiative a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection. This process creates a secure, private "tunnel" between your computer and the network at MLC.

You can view a video on how to connect and disconnect or read the instructions below. In order to follow these instructions you will need to receive permission from the MLC Human Resources office and have your device setup by MLC Network Services.

Connecting to the VPN

  1. Find the OpenVPN GUI client icon in the Windows taskbar at the lower right of your screen. You may need to click the Show hidden icons arrow to get it to show up.
