VPN (Virtual Privat Network) is a technology to connect to a remote network in a secure way. This service is available to all RESTENA users outside the network wanting to connect to service available only on the intranet or to external services normally reserved to the RESTENA network (i.e. Fichier élève application).

VPN usage is accessible only to RESTENA users and needs a RESTENA account (username + password). To open a RESTENA VPN connection, please use your RESTENA username. The IAM username is not valid!
