VPN at ITA and UiO

How to set up VPN at UiO

ITA users need to use VPN in order to mount Stornext disk from home or elsewhere

The faculty of Education has written a VPN setup guide in Norwegian

(System Prefs - Network - UnLock  - Add a connection (+) and then:
Interface: VPN
Server name: vpn.uio.no
VPN Type: Cisco IPSec
Service Name: Ie. "VP (UiO)"
Under "Authentication Settings":
Shared Secret: merkelapp
Group Name: uio
+ "Show VPN status in menu bar)

In addition you need to mount the Stornext disks.
This is most easilly done in Finder by hitting
Command K
and then type smb://sunflower.uio.no/YOUR_USER_NAME and then Connect

Of course replace your user name with your real UiO user name (short).
