Access to the VPN is assigned to those who require it for a university business or academic function. To request access, send an email to InformationSecurity@missouristate.edu. Include a short description of the academic or business reason you are requesting VPN access.
To use the Passport VPN, you cannot already be connected to the Missouri State network. The VPN is designed to allow those not currently on the network a secure connection to the network.
This is to set up your Virtual Private Network (VPN) which allows you to access your computer, file shares, and internal websites off campus.
On your Android phone, search the Play Store for the Cisco AnyConnect app and install the AnyConnect ICS+ version.
Touch the Add New VPN Connection button.
Touch Server Address.
Enter passport.missouristate.edu as the server address and press OK.
Back in the main app screen, under Choose a connection... select the passport.missouristate.edu server.
A window will open asking you to enter your credentials. The Username will be your BearPassLogin@sgf, and the Password will be your BearPass Password. Then press OK.
Another window may open asking if you trust this application. Check the I trust the application box and press OK.
You have now connected to the Missouri State Network via VPN.
