Creating a Secure Connection to UB (for Off Campus)

UBUnix only accepts connections from non-UB (remote) locations by affiliated UB faculty, staff and students that are made using secure protocols.

Use Cisco AnyConnect for a Secure Connection

If you are off campus, download and install Cisco AnyConnect once, then run it each time you want to establish a secure connection in order to connect to UBUnix.
