Connect using the UCSD Virtual Private Network (VPN).

With VPN, you can access UCSD services safely from off campus. Traffic between your remote machine (off-campus or wireless) and campus passes over a single encrypted connection, and your remote machine has a UCSD IP address.

Connect using the UCSD Web proxy server.

With the Web proxy, you can access UCSD Web sites and library resources from off campus. Your communication is not encrypted, and only your Web traffic to UCSD sites has a UCSD IP address.
