Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Virtual Private Networking (VPN) is a software tool that allows Pace end-users to connect securely to the Pace University network from off-campus (e.g. home).  Once you authenticate with your MyPace username and password, the VPN software will create an encrypted connection between your off-campus computer and the Pace network.  This will allow you to access network resources as if you were using a computer located on-campus.
