The new service can be launched from your web browser and eliminates the need to install additional desktop software. It works under Mac OS X (including 10.6, Snow Leopard), Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Linux. Installation and start-up can all be handled through a web page that installs and launches a signed ActiveX or Java VPN client and connects to MIT’s service quickly and easily.
When you access Cisco’s AnyConnect VPN client, it will connect you to Cisco's SSL VPN Service page. For more information, see the Virtual Private Network at MIT page. IS&T will be working closely with the community to ensure a seamless transition to the new service and a phased retirement of the existing service by June 30, 2010. If you need assistance, contact the IS&T Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-253-1101.
