DECEMBER: ITS Connect

News Story

Just in time for the coming of winter, some advice from Information Technology Services on connecting remotely, wirelessly, and more.

Connecting Remotely
Use Pace's Virtual Private Network (VPN) to connect to your on campus computer. VPN allows for a secure connection to your on-campus machine and also provides a secure connect for various systems and online forms. Note: You will need to use Remote Desktop along with VPN to complete this connection. For more information, visit Virtual Private Network. For detailed instructions, see the Self-Help Guides.

Need Wireless?
First, configure wireless devices (laptop, iPad, Smartphone) to connect to PACE-OPEN. (This is a one-time process.) Then follow instructions to automatically configure and register the device for PACE-WIRELESS. When complete, the device needs to be connected to PACE-WIRELESS. Learn more. To check if your device is registered, go to How do I check if my device is registered?

Updated Your OS or Software Recently?
Keep in mind that any changes to your OS or software packages such as an update or upgrade may affect wireless configuration settings. For example, the recent release of Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) has known issues with wireless. For more details about this issue, click here.
