SecureVPN (OpenVPN) for Mac OS X

INTRODUCTION

This is a manual to set up SecureVPN (OpenVPN), an alternative to a VPN connection via Mac OS X. The advantage of SecureVPN (OpenVPN) is that you have to set up less yourself, because the software comes preconfigured.

VPN is used for setting up a virtual network connection over another physical network connection. In this case it is used to connect your computer remotely to the University of Twente network by acquiring an IP address starting with 130.89.

·

By using a VPN tunnel all of your Internet traffic will go via the UTnet, which means you can search scientific databases with the UT’s licences. This will mean that your Internet connection is somewhat slower. On the Internet, your computer will act the same as a UT computer, because of that, it might be the case that services from your Internet provider (e.g. Live TV) will not work whilst you are connected via VPN.

BEFORE YOU GET STARTED

·

This guide has been written for Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). It is possible that the images for other versions of Mac OS X are slightly different, but the steps are nearly identical. Separate manuals are available for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

·

When working through the manual, you will frequently have to perform operations. A specific style of writing is used for these instructions: references to text and buttons on screens are printed in italics, data that you have to enter yourself is printed in bold.

You’ll need the following:

·

An Internet connection that is already active.

·

An ICT account. This is your employee or student number with corresponding password.

Local admin rights.
