For most individuals, there is no need to connect to the VPN to access EWU services. Only a handful of services require the VPN and they are:
- Jasper (not emailed reports)
- NetStorage S: and Personal Drives
- PPRD/DEVL Banner
If it's not listed here, for example Banner or Outlook, the VPN is not needed. For the list of services that do not require the use of VPN, see this article.
Connecting to the VPN does not increase or affect the security of those services that do not require it.
