ITACS - Remote Access - Service - VPN

Virtual Private Network

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a secure connection to the NPS internal network.
NPS supports connections from the Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect (SSL) VPN client, and from the GlobalProtect VPN (IPSec) client. GlobalProtect uses Microsoft’s Multi-Factor Authentication to connect.
Either client will allow you to:
Access internal websites/applications including, but not limited to, the Intranet, Python, Student Muster, and Course Evaluation Forms (CEFs).
Map network drives.
Remote desktop over to computers located on campus.
Since your remote computer will be connected to the NPS network, it must meet our security requirements. Operating system security patches must be applied, and anti-virus software must be installed and kept up to date.
The Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect client allows you to connect your home computer to the NPS network. Many handheld devices, including the iPad and iPhone, have native support for the GlobalProtect VPN (IPSec) Client. Below are the pages to instructions and information regarding Microsoft MFA and GlobalProtect (VPN). NPS Login is required to access these pages.
