VPN for mac iOS (eduVPN)


Virtual Private Networking (VPN) is used to set up a virtual network connection across another physical network connection. In this case, that involves setting up a VPN connection to the University of Twente, so that you will acquire an IP address starting with 130.89, even if your Internet Service Provider is not the same as that of the University of Twente. With this VPN connection, you will get both an IPv4 and IPv6 UT address. All network traffic from your device will go through the network of the University of Twente.
