Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) provides CUHK staff with a secure remote access to on-campus resources over an Internet connection. Once connected, all traffic for accessing on-campus resources go through the VPN tunnel. The rest traffic goes through your original Internet connection.
You may experience an unstable VPN connection from mainland China with the gradual upgrade of China’s Great Firewall. Most of the University systems do not require a VPN connection. You can do your email, access eLearning system, browse CUHK websites, etc. through any Internet connection. Please check out services that require a VPN connection.
