On Campus Access to the UD Network & Internet
Connecting to the wireless network
The University of Dayton offers two campus wireless networks: UDsecure and UDwireless.
UDsecure is the preferred wireless network for UD students, faculty and staff and provides encrypted wireless communications via the WPA2 protocol. Conveniently, once your device is configured to use UDsecure, it will automatically recognize and authenticate to this secure wireless network while you’re on campus.
Configure your wireless device with the UDsecure Setup Wizard starting Monday August 5, 2013. Improper manual configuration may leave your device vulnerable to compromise.
UDwireless is unsecured and should only be used for the initial setup of UDsecure or if your device does not support WPA2. UDwireless will require web authentication via your device web browser each time your device connects to the network.
Connecting to the wired network
To connect to the Internet while on campus, open a web browser and enter your UD username and password on the University of Dayton Network Access page. Alternately, on-campus users can bypass the webpage authentication by downloading the NAC agent and authenticating to our campus network through that application.
For assistance connecting your device to the UD network, contact the computer help desk at (937)229-3888 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Top
Off Campus Access to the UD Network
Connect through the virtual private network (VPN) to access your campus workstation using Remote Desktop or access your network drives using the Novell client.
Log Into the Novell SSL VPN
- Login at http://go.udayton.edu/vpn with your LDAP username and password. NOTE: This link works only from off-campus.
- Leave this browser window open. Then resume your usual remote access method.
- Access your campus workstation using Remote Desktop or another remote access program. Windows users can access your network drives using the Novell client icon in the taskbar.
Note: This VPN does not work with Windows 8. There is no solution at this time. Windows 7 SP1, Mac OS 10.7.5 and Mac OS 10.8.4 are the tested OS versions supported with the VPN.
Note: The VPN is not needed to access most Internet based resources from off campus. The library has a proxy server that allows users to connect to databases from off campus.Top
