As of July 2016 please use the NEW VPN Software, Global Connect (PVPN)
Network Connect is no longer the supported VPN software. Please use Global Connect, the new MHC VPN Software.
If you are using the now retired Network Connect software, please consider switching to the new Global Connect Software. You may call the MHC Helpdesk, x2600, with any quesitons.
Now retired Network Connect instructions:
Choose all default options for the install.
Google Drive Installers - Require an MHC Login
- Web Installer (requires Java and browser software to be up to date)
Once you download and install this software, go to your list of programs on your computer and search for the program titled "Network Connect". Mac users may have to hold down the control-key while double-clicking it in order to get the "open" button to appear -- an OS security feature.
Once it launches, assure that https://vpn.mtholyoke.edu is there in the top bar once the program launches. (If blank upon first launch, type vpn.mtholyoke.edu and hit enter The center of the page should refresh, asking for your name and password.)
