Using the MSU Virtual Private Network

What is a VPN?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It is a way to log in and create a secure connection to MSU systems or RHS files when you are at an off-campus location or using campus wireless networks.

Before You Begin

The latest version of the MSU VPN software must be installed on RHS laptops by an Information Services technician. You can request an install by logging a service request at or by contacting the IS Help Desk by phone at 517-353-1691. If you are using an iPad or another tablet, you may be able to download and install the VPN software yourself. Visit, click on the Quick Start Installation Guide link and follow the instructions.

The VPN User Guide (under the file section on this page) includes instructions for installing, configuring, launching and using the VPN.
