What is the WSU VPN?

The Wayne State University Virtual Private Network (VPN) uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol (which provides secure communications on the internet and is found in standard web browsers) to allow access to WSU resources that are blocked by a firewall. 

You ONLY need to use the VPN to access Banner, Cognos, STARS, or RDP.  

NOTE, if you are using a DeskTech laptop, the built-in DirectAccess technology allows you to access all Wayne State resources -- even Banner, Cognos, STARS, W:/ drive -- all without using the VPN.

In order to use the WSU VPN, you must be an employee or student and have the Duo Mobile App installed and set up. Learn how to set up the Duo Mobile App at tech.wayne.edu/kb/security/two-factor-authentication/160520.
