UF VPN (Virtual Private Network) Service

This very effective approach requires your GatorLink account to download setup software, as well as to log on each time you wish to network through the UF campus (needed for licensed library database access). See the VPN Web site link below. The UF Computing Help Desk at 392-HELP (or see link below) can assist with setting up this approach.

UF VPN
  • Download VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection software from UF.
  • When you want to connect through UF, just click a VPN icon on your desktop; enter your GatorLink username/password.
  • Once connected in this way, access to library-licensed databases is automatic.
  • Recommended if connecting to library resources through WebCT.
  • Easier Web navigation than EZproxy; no need to follow special instructions to remain connected.
  • VPN Web Site -- Download needed software, FAQ, etc.
  • UF Computing Help Desk -- For assistance with VPN setup, troubleshooting, etc. The Libraries do not provide technical support for VPN.
  • GatorLink -- A GatorLink account is required for use of VPN
