Department of Botany VPN


General Information

The Department of Botany maintains a VPN server for use by collaborators who need to access resources on the Botany network but do not have a NetID that allows them to use WiscVPN.

If you have a NetID, please use WiscVPN.

If you do not have a NetID, ask a current member of the department request access to the Botany VPN for you. Requests originating directly with outside collaborators will be ignored. Requests can be e-mailed to Botany IT.

Technical Requirements

The Botany VPN utilizes Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol over IPSec (L2TP/IPSec) which is supported by all major operating systems.

Instructions for Mac OS X, Windows 7, and Windows XP can be found below.
