Install the VPN client (Mac)

These instructions explain how to obtain and install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client for MacOS, which is used to create secure network connections to the Lehigh campus network from off campus. A VPN connection makes your Macintosh computer appear to be on campus, even though it actually isn't. If you aren't sure whether you need to do this (or to find out why you might want to), read the VPN Overview. Once the client is installed, the document Connect to the VPN (Mac) explains how to use it.
