 The VPN service makes it possible to connect from virtually any computer and get assigned one of the university'​s IP numbers, which makes it look as if the computer connects from inside the university, and in addition encrypts the communication between your computer and the university network, which is something that is important if you connect to the university'​s services while travelling. The VPN service makes it possible to connect from virtually any computer and get assigned one of the university'​s IP numbers, which makes it look as if the computer connects from inside the university, and in addition encrypts the communication between your computer and the university network, which is something that is important if you connect to the university'​s services while travelling.
  
-Regardless of the VPN method you use, it is required that the computer already has **a working Internet connection**,​ either via fixed network connection via cable or a wireless network. VPN is a service that is added on top of, and that requires, a working Internet connection.+It is required that the computer already has **a working Internet connection**,​ either via fixed network connection via cable or a wireless network.

-**VPN in tunnel ​mode** -- works with any university services. ​Because this method works with all services, **we recommend ​that you use this method**if possible. Follow ​the instructions via this link: +

 + 
 +Normally, all network traffic is sent through the VPN tunnel when connected. This is because the university ​has a number of externally hosted ​services ​(i.e. subscription ​servicesthat require an LU ip number. Therefore, the default configuration is to pass all network traffic through the VPN tunnel when VPN is active.

 When you use VPN in tunnel mode, you typically get an IP address in the ''​vpn.lu.se''​ series. This works well for most people'​s needs, and provides access to all the services mentioned above, and more. When you use VPN in tunnel mode, you typically get an IP address in the ''​vpn.lu.se''​ series.

-If you instead, when connecting with VPN, need to have assigned a particular IP address in the right range for your office or your department, then this is a service that you in advance can request from [[Helpdesk]]. If you do not know if you need such a specific IP address, you probably do not need it. +If you instead, when connecting with VPN, need to have assigned a particular IP address in the right range for your office or your department, then this is a service that you in advance can request from [[LTH Support]].

-===== VPN in Web Mode ===== 
- 
-**VPN in web mode** -- perhaps the easiest way to use VPN from any computer. Works from any computer, as it does not require any special software. The disadvantage is that the VPN in web mode is limited and does not work with all university services; In practice, it works only with the completely web-based services. Go here to log in:
