Connecting to BVU's VPN

Accessing a secure connection to BVU Resources

A VPN connection is now required for users to access network drives and printers from outside of the Storm Lake campus. Connecting through the VPN creates a secure connection between your computer and main campus so you can access any BVU resources from anywhere with an internet connection.

Accessing the VPN with a BVU computer

  1. Click on the Network Connection icon in the System Tray and select Connect or Disconnect.
