INSTRUCTIONS FOR LOGGING IN FROM A HOME COMPUTER

To access the database from your home computer, you must first have the VPN software installed on your machine. Follow the steps below, to install the VPN software. Please note that you must use Internet Explorer as your web browser; Netscape causes a conflict and VPN software will not download, install, or run. You must uninstall Netscape to overcome this issue with the VPN software.

  1. Go to http://ims.uthscsa.edu/communications/vpn.aspx
  2. Download the VPN software.
  3. A shortcut will then be created for your desktop and will be called: uthscsavpndialer.

 

To login from your home computer:
  1. First, turn on the UTHSCSA VPN dialer by double clicking on the desktop icon. You will be asked for your username and password. These are the same as for your access to the Network domain (this is the username and password you use to access your UTHSCSA e-mail account for Outlook).
  2. Once the VPN software is turned on, you will see a yellow “lock” icon in the system tray (lower left part of the desktop). This “lock” should show a closed loop, indicating the connection is secure.
  3. After confirming that VPN is on, you can access the UTHSCSA home page and navigate just as if you were on a computer on the HSC campus (this includes library searches, placing orders on the intranet, as well as FS2 access). To access FS2, follow the steps listed above for use on a UTHSCSA computer.
