About VPN (Virtual Private Networking) at BC
Setup Eagle VPN
When to Use VPN
- 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.
- To access confidential BC information from home that should be encrypted (scrambled) while traveling on the internet.
- To access your campus computer through file sharing.
Note: VPN is not needed to access your BC email. A VPN connection is also not needed for standard use of the internet and web; this can be done through your ISP (Internet Service Provider) alone.
