New VPN now available!

Internet Splat MapGW has replaced the existing VPN (Virtual Private Network) access with a new VPN that launched today.  The VPN allows your computer to function as though it is on the GW campus and therefore allows you to access most databases, e-texts, and e-journals without additional logins. The new VPN should provide more stable access to Himmelfarb Library resources and is easy to use, but does represent a change in workflows for users.

Instructions for connection via the VPN (Recommended)

Installation

  1. Download and install the VPN client, Cisco AnyConnect.
  2. The first time you connect type go.vpn.gwu.edu into the box, then click Connect.
  3. Login to VPN with your GW NetID and password (the same login/password that you use for your GWMail or CMail).
  4. Access the Himmelfarb Library website again. You can now access databases, e-texts, and e-journals without any additional logins.

Connecting to the VPN

  1. On your computer, start the program Cisco AnyConnect then select the GW address (go.vpn.gwu.edu) and select Connect.
  2. Login to VPN with your GW NetID and password (the same login/password that you use for your GWMail or CMail).
  3. Additional information:

Himmelfarb Library’s alternate means of off-campus access, WRLC Library Services login, will continue to function normally.  Instructions for both VPN and WRLC Library Services are available from Himmelfarb Library’s Off-Campus Access instructions.

    Hello, do these instructions apply when connecting via VPN from iPad? I can’t seem to open the .dmg file to install Cisco Anyconnect.

    The VPN instructions DO NOT apply to iPads.
