New VPN for you who has local administrator on your computer

As part of the IT-department work to improve both user experience and security, we have prepared a new VPN solution. You can find the new solution here: https://na.nmbu.no. It requires two-factor and secure login through our single-sign-on service, if you are not on campus.

The first time you try to start the resource “VPN-Employee”, you need to install a small VPN client application. You will be prompted by the following image:

Press on “Download” and then run the executable file that was downloaded. Be aware that the installer is completely silent and will not give any feedback when it is finished. Just wait 20 seconds before you press “Click here”

You will then be prompted for administrative rights to finish the client installation and the image below will appear:

Here you have to use your local administrator username and your local administrator password. You need to start with .\ in order for this to work etc: .\myadmin Then you will see that “domain” changes from NMBU to your PC’s hostname.

Next picture that comes up the first time you try to connect, select the first choice: “Add this site to your Trusted Sites list, and always allow running Network Access/Application Tunnels from this site.”

You will then see that the client connects, and you can also find the status window by opening it through the icon in systray.

The next time you need to connect through VPN, just go to https://na.nmbu.no in your favorite browser.

Update settings on your NMBU PC.
