Working Remotely - VPN

Other Platforms

Android, BlackBerry, Kindle Fire and Chrome OS Users

The new AnyConnect client can be installed on:

  • Android, Blackberry
  • Kindle Fire
  • Google OS (including the ChromeBook)
  • Linux

Please consult your platform's Application Store to download the client. Support for Android devices is available from the PC Clinic and Service Desk to enable connectivity to wireless/VPN.

After installing the client users should configure it to connect to vpn.lboro.ac.uk and enter their normal Loughborough University username and password when prompted. 

After clicking on Connect staff and postgraduate researchers should respond to the multi-factor authentication notification on their mobile device to complete the login process.

Staff and postgraduate researchers who are using a hardware token or login code generated by the Duo Mobile application should follow their password with a comma and then the code they have generated (e.g. if your password is Pass1word and the code you have generate is 123456 you would enter Pass1word,123456 in the password field in the AnyConnect client).

For further information on multi-factor authentication please see https://www.lboro.ac.uk/internal/multi-factor-auth/.

Linux users can either use the Cisco AnyConnect client, which can be downloaded using the link below, or the OpenConnect SSL VPN client, further details of which can be found at http://www.infradead.org/openconnect/.  After installing the appropriate client users should configure the software to connect to vpn.lboro.ac.uk and enter their normal Loughborough University username and password when prompted.
