A Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a secure connection between your computer and the District's internal network giving you the ability to remotely access internal network resources as if you were at a District site. 

CUSD offers two types of VPN - Client VPN and Web VPN. Most internal network resources can be accessed by way of the Web VPN. Some resources, including File Servers, can only be accessed with client VPN. Additionally, the client VPN will provide enhanced functionality for Aeries NET.
