Using NSU as ISP
If you are using NSU as your Internet Service Provider, you do not need to use the VPN.
If you are on-campus or at an SEC and connected by NSU wireless, dial-up or ethernet, you do not need to connect to the VPN.
NSU’s VPN service (SharkVPN) provides a secure connection to the campus network from any location, as long as the device has an internet connection. The SharkVPN can be used to access campus resources securely with a strong encryption, authenticated access to NSU network from external environments, while it proxies your network traffic as NSU.
SharkVPN is an extension of the NSU network and subject to the University’s policies. SharkVPN connections are automatically ended 24 hours after initiation for service and security reasons.
Download the Setup Guide relevant to your system configuration and if possible, print it out.
Follow these step-by-step installation instructions to set up your SharkVPN.
