VPN (UGA private network)

Service available for students and staff
The VPN service offers a secure access to the digital resources of Université Grenoble Alpes, for all registered students and staff of the institution regardless of the location and connection method.

Presentation

Whether you connect from home on an ADSL link, on a Wi-Fi hotspot with free access or on the network of another establishment via eduroam for example, you can use the VPN to securely access UGA’s digital resources almost as if you were connected physically at the university.


Access conditions

To access the VPN service, you have to follow conditions:
  • the user has to respect the IT charter;
  • the user must have an Agalan account and have received his UGA IDs.


Login details used to connect VPN

When you log on the VPN, you will need to fill in three fields:
  • your UGA Agalan login;
  • your UGA Agalan password;
  • your group: "Etudiants de l’UGA" (UGA Students) or "Personnel de l’UGA” (UGA Staff).
The Agalan login details are those commonly used to access various services: LEO Intranet, Zimbra webmail, etc.

A help procedure to set up and use the VPN is available in the “Download” box.

More information

The SSL VPN has the particularity of passing through the port 443 (TCP) also used by universal DTLS and HTTPS protocols so allowed by default on many networks, unlike VPN IPsec historically used by our establishment and of which use can be confronted by a lot of filtering.

The SSL VPN connection being encrypted, the security of exchanges is therefore reinforced.
