WiscVPN Client Transition

Posted: 14:44:32, Monday, May 8, 2017   Expiration: 14:44:32, Friday, Dec 29, 2017

The WiscVPN service is transitioning from the Cisco AnyConnect Client to the Palo Alto GlobalProtect client. How you access WiscVPN during the transition will depend on your device and whether you need a static IP address.

Dynamic WiscVPN users may begin using GlobalProtect now. AnyConnect will still be supported through the fall.

Static WiscVPN users MUST start using use GlobalProtect starting on August 30, 2017 at 5:00 am. Static WiscVPN cannot use the new service before that date/time and they cannot use the old Anyconnect service after that date/time.

Note: After migration to the Palo Alto GlobalProtect client, Static WiscVPN users will keep their existing WiscVPN static IP addresses.

Note: If you're not sure what connection type you need, you likely use a dynamic IP address. See WiscVPN - Static vs. Dynamic IP Addresses for more information on static versus dynamic connections.
