The Husky OnNet VPN is a UW provided VPN service. It enables off-campus computers to largely act like they are on-campus and will provide remote access to most on-campus services. There are some important limitations however: some services are blocked, some of our servers don't allow generic on-campus access and thus will now work with Husky OnNet, and connections are limited to 72 hours. Additionally it will only work with WIndows and Mac OSX; UW does hope to offer iOS, Android, and Linux capability in the future.
