OpenVPN Service Retirement

This document serves as a notice that OpenVPN is not recommended, guaranteed or supported for UWM community VPN users.

UWM offers a way to access campus computer services remotely for users who may be travelling or do not live near the campus. This is done over a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which used to be available through OpenVPN.  OpenVPN has never been officially supported and after 3/1/16, all UWM licenses for this software will expire.  OpenVPN may or may not be visible to you as an option to connect, however, using this method is not supported and not guaranteed to be available 100% of the time.

Effective 1/1/16, users are urged to use Pulse Secure VPN instead to connect to the UWM VPN.

PulseSecure has been officially rolled out to the campus community and users will be able to contact the Help Desk or their Support teams for
