IT Services is updating Stanford’s VPN service. The new service is powered by Cisco AnyConnect and is available now at su-vpn.stanford.edu. This will replace our current SUSSL service.
Users who have used SUSSL in the past six months will be notified directly of this change today. The old SUSSL at sussl.stanford.edu will be retired on March 31, 2014. We advise you to encourage your VPN users to move to the new VPN service as soon as possible to avoid any potential work stoppages. You may use either VPN during this transition period, but after March 31st, you must use su-vpn.stanford.edu. The old sussl.stanford.edu URL will be retired.
The first time a user goes to su-vpn.stanford.edu, a java applet will be installed, similar to what users did for the SUSSL service. Future connections will require no additional configuration. Complete instructions for configuration for Windows, Macs, Linux, iOS, and Android are available at vpn.stanford.edu. If you experience problems, please submit a HelpSU request at helpsu.stanford.edu/?pcat=vpn. We’ll be happy to assist you.
