Samba VPN – Download and Installation

Samba is a server which allows connection to the university network from outside networks. This allows for users outside the campus to access the universities databases. One way to connect to Samba is installing a VPN client.

In order to work with Samba VPN, you will need a RA account. See more information about your account.

Users may authenticate with a set password or with an OTP card.  Authentication with an OTP card will allow access to additional services such as Remote Desktop, telnet, FTP and more.  Click here to see more information on obtaining an OTP card.
