EKU provides a VPN client for securely accessing certain EKU resources from off campus.  Most EKU-issued PCs have a feature called DirectAccess that allows seamless access to such resources without the need to manually launch a VPN client.  However, some sites such as TracDat require the VPN.

The VPN client is available for Windows PCs and Macs.

Among other things, a VPN would allow to get to Banner and allow access to TracDat and https://networkdrives.eku.edu from off campus.  If you have an EKU-issued PC in your office, you can use another computer to connect to it as though you were sitting in front of it by using a Remote Desktop client.
