Appalachian State has partnered with Pulse Secure to provide faculty and staff with a method of connecting to campus-specific resources from off-campus.

Create a Secure Connection to the Campus Network

The Pulse Secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) is an application that, once installed on your home computer, creates an encrypted tunnel into Appalachian's secure network. This allows you to utilize Remote Desktop software to log into your work computer or use soft phone applications as through you were sitting at your desk.

(Note: Pulse Secure is only available to faculty and staff.)

To connect to our Pulse Secure VPN, follow these steps

When the connection is finalized a secure tunnel has been established back to the campus network and your computer will respond as if it were connected to the campus network.  Access to secure websites  should be available as long as the PULSE Secure software is open and connected.Note:  If your connection fails, or if secure services are not working as intended, a full computer restart will usually resolve the issue.
