GTIIT VPN for accessing from off-campus network
GTIIT has a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service which provides a secure method to connect to the University campus network regardless of where you are connecting from (e.g. a Wi-Fi in your home). Through the GTIIT VPN, you can connect remotely to some resources that are usually only available on the campus network. Put it another way, when using GTIIT VPN service, it routes and encrypts all traffic going to GTIIT internal resources, Technion Israel sites, and some academic sites (e.g. Google Scholar) through the University network as if you were on campus. All non-GTIIT traffic proceeds to its destination directly – from your local internet connection.
