Remote Access to SENS Services

Many students, faculty, and staff have direct Internet connections from home, and a common question asked of us concerns using various SENS services when away from UB. The following sections detail how to access services which are available from off campus.

SENS Timeshare Systems

For the protection of SENS user data, direct connections from computers outside of the local UB network to the UBiquity Timeshare systems are blocked. SENS get an alarming number of break-in attempts every day, and it was deemed necessary to put this policy in effect. However, UB supports the Virtual Private Network (VPN) protocol, which allows for secure access from off-site systems. This UBIT web page has instructions on how to configure your computer to use the AnyConnect VPN software.
