Secure VPN


To better protect the servers, applications, and student/faculty data, the Computing Sciences server environment is located behind a VPN. When not directly connected to the Computing Sciences network in the Loyola Science Center the use of the Pulse Secure VPN client is required.

Below are instructions for installing and using the Pulse Secure VPN client. If you're having trouble connecting to the VPN you can find some troubleshooting steps here.




Installing the Pulse Secure VPN Client (Linux)

NOTE: On Ubuntu installing through the Ubuntu Software Center is supported

  1. Download the Pulse VPN Client installation software. A valid Computing Sciences account is required to download. Installation requires administrative access.

    Please Login to Download

  2. Install the client by issuing the following command:
    • Debian-based installation:
      dpkg -i [/path/to/package]
    • RPM-based installation:
      rpm -ivh [/path/to/package]

  3. Install the required application dependencies by executing the PulseClient.sh script with the install_dependency_packages option

    /usr/local/pulse/PulseClient.sh install_dependency_packages

    NOTE: Depending on the version of Pulse that is installed the name of this file may be slightly different. Example: PulseClient_x86_64.sh
