VPN maybe necessary

Hi!

Since a few months it is necessary to establish a vpn connection if you e.g. want to connect to your TU webspace.
So you may try to connect to the TU via vpn and then try to establish the connection via putty.

Access your computer over internet in a secure way

Accessing you own data is getting more and more important. Part of it is already accessible from "everywhere", when stored with your emails. But "the cloud" is not that advanced yet and so there are documents you only have on your computer. Imagine you switch place for a couple of days, and still want to be able to look something up. One possibility was to create a backup and store all documents you might need on an external drive - a tedious process, and will forget the <em>one important</em> document. You could also open a port for Windows' Remote Desktop connection, but for security reasons this is not a choice. There should be a secure way to access the data.

Connect to wlan via vpn under Ubuntu 9.04

<p>To connect to the internet via vpn and wlan you first have to get an ip address from the wlan accesspoint. After this you can build up the vpn tunnel and register yourself in one step. This is safe and comfortable if you are working at your workplace. With Windows XP (SP3) this works without problems.</p><p>But when I use Ubuntu 9.04 I cannot connect to the server to register. On the TU I can only receive an ip address, open a browser an type my username and password in the login-field. This does not seem to be very secure due to the fact that the connection is not encrypted when sending this information. Interestingly the connection from home to the vpn-server (which has another ip than the first one) works fine without problems.</p>

Getting WLAN access with iPhone at the university

I have an account jdorn@mobil.tuwien.ac.at that I use on a Laptop to access the closed TUWIS WLAN. In an Internet browser I enter account and password. Then I have access to the Internet for a limited period of time. On my iPhone the entering of the required data is too cumbersome.
