Remote Connectivity - the Lehigh VPN

Since the Lehigh campus network is connected to the Internet, it is possible to connect to Lehigh systems using it.  However, to do so, for most systems, one must connect through a gateway server called a VPN.  A VPN is a network system that makes a secure connection between a client computer (or device) at a remote location (such as a personal machine at home or off-campus) and a protected, private network (such as Lehigh's campus network) over an otherwise insecure public network (such as the Internet).

Some employees also need access to run reports from Banner by linking to Banner tables and/or views.

Virtual Software: LUapps

Virtual software systems, also known as 'application virtualization' technologies, allow users to run numerous programs that aren’t installed on their devices by installing a single piece of client software (Citrix Receiver / Workspace), and using it to connect to a central server on which the programs actually run.  This enables Android, iOS or Mac users to easily access software that is only written for Windows, for example. Lehigh now uses Citrix for this, and has a customized implementation called 'LUapps'.
