Connecting to Precon network via VPN

VPN access allows you to access program installed on your local computer as if you are working within the Precon network.

The VPN program is created by the IT group. The program is specific to your user account, and a separate installer is required to be generated for every individual. If you do not have the OpenVPN program installed on your computer and feel you should, contact IT for setup.
