VPN (Virtual Private Network) is used for devices (notebooks, iPad, SmartPhone, iPhone) to make a connection through the internet between the computer and the UT. This enables services to be used that are only available through the UTnet. This service can be used throughout the world, provided that a VPN connection is made with the internet.
