VPN Client Installation


How do I setup the VPN client? How do I connect to MavDISK or MavPRINT from off campus?


You can connect to the Virtual Private Network (VPN) client software using your StarID on both a Windows computer and a Mac. The VPN client is used to allow your computer to do tasks off campus that would usually require you to be on campus. Examples of this include but are not limited to the following:

  • Connect to MavPRINT
  • Map a network drive (MavDISK)
  • Connect to Krypton
  • Access ISRS (Uniface)
  • And more


Check to see if you have the VPN client installed before you continue to the installation. Select one of the options below for instructions.
