The VPN service
The VPN service (Virtual Private Network) – Remote Access service allows users of UTAD’s computer systems to access UTAD resources remotely, under the same conditions they would have if they were physically connected to the network on the UTAD campus. Access is made over an encrypted channel, ensuring the security of the transmitted data.
This service is part of the international EduVPN project, developed by GEANT specifically for the academic community, allowing access by any client or operating system (Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, IOS).
To access the internet through VPN, you must install the client software, and configure it following the instructions available at [https://eduvpn.utad.pt ]
