Download and Configure the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client Software

In order to connect to the Lehigh network, and many of the resources on it from an off-campus computer, users need to install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client. This software encrypts your device's network traffic, and allows it to pass through a 'tunnel' over the internet, and onto the Lehigh network, allowing a remote device to function as if it were on campus.

The steps below describe the process of downloading and installing the software onto 'desktop' computer operating systems -- they're the the same for Windows and Mac.

Print via Email to LTS Printers

You can print to LTS public site printers by emailing an attachment to the printer's designated email address. This makes printing easy from any device--no need to download individual printer drivers, connect to the VPN, or the print server.

Editing the Classroom Technology and Public Computers Pages

This guide is intended to orient editors of the Classroom Technology and Public Computers pages (https://ltsfacilities.lehigh.edu), which exist to communicate to students, faculty and other staff about the equipment and services offered in the locations described there. Those descriptions should let the readers know both about what equipment and services are provided in the room and who should be contacted with regard to each of the types of services.

Controlling Dual Displays in an LTS Facility

Some rooms at Lehigh are equipped with dual projectors or displays, allowing two different video sources to be shown at once. Dual display rooms offer significant flexibility but they are somewhat complex. If you would like an orientation please call the Media Center (83059).

Linux (And Unix) Support at Lehigh

Although the largest body of computers at Lehigh run either Microsoft's Windows, or Mac OS X, a small but gradually growing segment run versions of Linux, or other versions of Unix. These are usually researchers, needing to run specific software written for those operating systems, but with the improvement of the user interfaces in these systems, an increasing number of users are choosing them for daily use.
