In order to access computing resources hosted at East Tennessee State University from off campus, use of ETSU remote access services is required. A remote access connection is a secured private network connection built on top of a public network, such as the Internet. Remote access provides a secure, encrypted connection, or tunnel, over the Internet between an individual computer (such as a computer off campus) and a private network (such as ETSU's). Use of remote access allows authorized members of the ETSU community to securely access ETSU network resources as if they were on the campus.
