Why use VPN?

 By using VPN, you can establish a direct connection to the local network at Nevis from the outside.

Normally, to access a machine on the local network, you use ssh to login to one of the workgroup servers, then ssh again to the local machine. But there are times when this become inconvenient or complicated; e.g., accessing a Windows machine at Nevis. A VPN connection can be a simpler solution.

Then click on "Connect". Enter your VPN account name and password.
 That's it. You should now be able to directly connect to any system on the local network; e.g., winnie.nevis.columbia.edu.
