TROUBLE SHOOTING:

If it didn’t connect try these;

1) Is the machine on the Internet? Try opening a web page and make sure you are connected.

2) Did you enter the correct username and password? Try logging in to Algonquin’s Secure Server at https://secure.algonquincollege.com. If you can login there than your username and password is correct.

3) If you still have trouble connecting contact ITS at x.5555 or the Media and Design Technicians at x.5009.

Disconnecting

To disconnect from the VPN simply click the VPN icon again and select “Disconnect Algonquin College”.
