To be allowed to access network disks, it is usually sufficient to be connected to the RU campus network, wired or wireless via Eduroam. The FGV meeting files are stored in an extra secure location, that can only be accessed from certain workstations, but also through the Science VPN secure connection. The next steps are needed to install the Science VPN.

Science VPN

  • Press the plus sign in the upper right corner to add a new VPN:


  • Type something like Science-VPN as name, choose type: PPTP, fill in as server address: vpn.science.ru.nl and hit Save.



  • Press "Science-VPN"


  • Fill in the Science username and the Science password and press "Connect". You may add @science.ru.nl after the Science username. N.B.: this is not the mail address, the Science username only contains lowercase characters [a-z] and for temporary guest accounts also the numbers [0-9].


  • After a few seconds the word "Connected" is shown below the "Science-VPN". In the upper right corner a key can be seen, showing that the VPN is active.


  • If you want to check your connection, you can do that by pointing your browser to http://www.whatsmyip.org. This will show that you have an IP number from the Science-VPN range: 131.174.224.NNN, with hostname vpn224NNN.science.ru.nl.


  • By pressing the line with Science-VPN or the key in the upper right corner, a window appears with the option to drop the VPN connection.
