The VPN site (http://www.infodiv.unimelb.edu.au/vpn/) provides documentation & the VPN client installer. Please read the information on the VPN site carefully before installing the client. Once installed, you will need to 'turn on' VPN each time you wish to use the service. You should see a lock icon in your systems tray. Click on this to open the VPN dialog box, click on the 'connect' button & login using your central email username/password. Once VPN has been activated you can run services such as the SciFinder Scholar client from off-campus. If you have any trouble using the service see the troubleshooting and FAQ pages on the VPN site. Some ISP's such as Telstra broadband cable require additional (but once-off) customisation.
