Cisco VPN

General Information

The Cisco VPN (virtual private network) client allows a computer to make secure network connections via specific equipment called VPN concentrators located on the campus network. Using the VPN, all network traffic between your computer and the VPN concentrator is encrypted. In addition, the VPN allows you to connect to other systems as if your computer were on campus, whether or not it actually is physically located on the campus network.

A new version of the Cisco VPN client is now available(when prompted, use your CalNetID and passphrase for access). For best results, remove any prior Cisco AnyConnect client version before installing a new release version.)

Windows Clients:
Cisco AnyConnect VPN client for Windows is downloadable as an .iso file. Systems running Windows 8/8.1 have the ability to access (mount) .iso files built into the operating system. Computers running Windows Vista or Windows 7 will require an additional tool (e.g. Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel or 7-ZIP) to install the VPN client from the .iso files. For more information on installing software from .iso files see the Mounting .iso Files FAQ.
For additional documentation please see Release Notes; Admin Guide; System Requirements.
For more information on installing and configuring the VPN client, as well as eligibility and use of this software to connect to the campus VPN service, please see:
