Please note the following points while connecting to Georgia Tech's VPN service:

  • VPN will not make your connection more reliable but will provide greater security -- especially over wireless networks.
  • All of your traffic will be directed through the campus network, so you may notice a performance change.
  • Your Internet traffic will be subject to the Computer & Network Usage and Security Policy.
  • Since your device will be taking on a Georgia Tech Internet address, it will no longer provide services to its local network.
  • VPN service may be blocked by administrators of your local network, so there may be locations from which VPN access is not possible. This condition is outside of OIT's control.
