The service is available to any person with a TU-ID.
Two profiles are available…
With this profile you receive an IP address from TU Network and only connections to TU are routed via VPN client. The use of internal resources is thus possible. For example, you can work in First Spirit from outside TU Darmstadt.
With this profile you receive an IP address from TU Network and all connections are routed via VPN. This also allows access to external resources. For example, the electronic journal library of ULB can be used from home.
External connections are faster than those with the profile “campus”. The profile “external” should therefore be preferred, if no external resources need to be used as a TU member.
VPN connections from dormitories
Access to the VPN gateways is prevented from the student dormitories. This is due to the fact that the volume of external traffic to the dormitories is limited on a monthly basis. By using the VPN gateways, this restriction would be avoided.
