VPN (Virtual Private Network)


  • Internet connection


VPN (Virtual Private Network) makes it possible access Chalmers computer resources via the Internet, from for example at home. A computer connected with VPN will appear as if it is a part of Chalmers network and will have a Chalmers IP address (129.16.x.y).


Chalmers VPN service is not primarily made as a security solution but instead a way to extend the chalmers network. When the computer is connected to Chalmers VPN you still have to connect to the services you want to use, for example home/group directories, according to their documentation.


When your computer is connected to Chalmers VPN you might have issues reaching network resources on other networks, even the ones where the computer physically is located at. To fix this simply disconnect the Chalmers VPN.
