After downloading and installing the Cisco AnyConnect client software for your device, as described on the VPN service page, you'll need to configure it and create a connection in order to begin accessing services that are inside Lehigh's network firewall.

Step Number:

Action: 

Find the 'Cisco AnyConnect' software on your system and start it.  You'll see a window with a blank box and a 'Connect' button.

Step Number: 
3
Action: 

If you're making this connection to access Library Resources, select 'Library Resources' from the pull-down. 

For all other connections, leave it on the default 'General Access', and type your Lehigh username and password into the appropriate boxes, and click 'OK'.

Tech. note:  'General Access' creates a split-tunnel, 'Library Resources' creates a full tunnel.

Step Number: 
4
Action: 

If the connection works properly, you will see the icon for the program change in the menu or taskbar to show a lock.  You may then proceed to access the Lehigh network resource as if you were on campus.
