VPN access

Updated 11/4/2019: CISL discontinued the use of Cisco AnyConnect client on November 1, so related documentation was moved from this page.

Some individuals who work closely with NCAR may need to use our virtual private network (VPN) to connect with internal resources. If you need VPN access, see your lab's system administrator about downloading the necessary client software.

When you have the client software and the required authentication token or app, you can connect to the VPN as described below.


Connecting with GlobalProtect

Start by clicking the GlobalProtect icon on your desktop or taskbar.

Enter your username. (Remove CIT\ if it appears in the password field. Enter only your username.)

Follow the procedures for using your authentication token or app to continue (for example, CIT password and Duo push). Use gp.ucar.edu as the portal name if it doesn't appear already.  

GlobalProtect signin

A box like the one below will remain on your screen while you are connected to the VPN.

GP disconnect

Click Disconnect when you are finished.
