This is a summary of the Remote Access services available for Keene State College. For the full remote access policy, including acceptable use, visit the KSC Remote Access Policy web site.

Secure access to Keene State College IT resources and services from a remote location outside the KSC network has become a frequently requested service. The KSC Remote Access solution was developed with the fundamental goal to protect KSC data within the KSC network. It enables authorized users consistent, secure, efficient and sustainable access to KSC IT resources.

The KSC remote access solution is implemented using a customized Cisco VPN Client. The client enables the user secure/encrypted access to the KSC network and login to a Terminal Server. The terminal server allows access to the following resources and services:

  • Outlook for your email
  • Personal Network Storage P: drive
  • Group Network Storage Q: drive
  • Student information system, visit http://www.keene.edu/it/eis/newacct.cfm for more information
  • Microsoft Office Applications
There are some limitations and special considerations while remotely accessing the KSC network.

  • Printing locally is not supported.
  • Access to USNH Banner Finance and HR resources is not available while running the KSC Remote Access solution.
  • Login access to desktops and servers is restricted to authorized personnel only.
Process
The Cisco VPN software client solution, customized for KSC, supports 32-bit versions of Windows XP, and 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7. MAC OS 10.4 through 10.6 are supported. The installation process provides installation instructions and how to logon to the terminal server.

Operating System
Please indicate on the request form in the supplied table which operating system(s) and version you will be using when connecting remotely.

Authorization
Enabling remote access for specific users need the following approvals:
  • KSC staff require authorization by their supervisor.
  • KSC faculty require authorization by their Department Chair or Dean.
  • Non KSC employees, e.g. vendors or contractors, requires authorization by a director.
To request remote access, you must fill out a Remote Access Request Form.
