Just looking to connect to bc securely from off-campus?
Use VPN (Virtual Private Networking) to access specific computers or servers behind BC's firewall. The firewall is a security measure that prevents anyone that does not have a BC IP address from accessing certain things on BC's network. VPN can also be used to access confidential BC information from home that should be encrypted (scrambled) while traveling on the Internet. Learn more about BC's VPN at: bc.edu/vpn
