VPN Setup


Windows 7 

For Windows 7 use the Cisco VPN Client


Windows 10 

The Cisco VPN client does not work in Windows 10. You can use a VPN client made by ShrewSoft instead.

Once installed, you can find the software as the “VPN Access Manger” under “ShrewSoft VPN Client” in the Start menu if a shortcut was not created on the desktop during install. Open the software and click the Add button.
