VPN Connect Client

The virtual private network (VPN) provides a secure connection to the Cal Lutheran campus from any computer that has an Internet connection.  The VPN is available to faculty, administrators and staff.  VPN will give the user the ability to access the protected network (file shares, Colleague and software that require network licensing) as if they were physically located on the Cal Lutheran campus.

Any staff that member that requires VPN will need to get approval.  Please see How to obtain access to the VPN below.

How to obtain access to the VPN (For Non-Administrators Only)

VPN access will need to be approved by the VP of your department.

Please email your request to the VP of your department and CC HR (hr@callutheran.edu).  You will need to include the following:

  • Reason why you need VPN access while off site
  • Approximate length of time you will need access

Once the VPN has been approve download and run the executable Pulse Secure Installer Service.exe.  After you have downloaded the software, you will need to setup the dual-factor authentication.  Click on the VPN Duo Authentication document under Faculty and Staff VPN Access for further instructions.
