-The VPN or Virtual Private Network ​can be used to securely connect ​to the GÖNET  ​from the internet ​and the goemobile network.+GWDG'​s ​VPN  can be used by students and other associates of Göttingen Campus ​to securely connect from the internet ​into GÖNET without being on the campus physically.
-The VPN connection will work over nearly ​all networks ​(DSL, ISDN, GSM etc.but some access providers may block VPN connections. +When the VPN is activated, ​all (IPv4data connections ​are transmitted via GÖNET. For most services that you are connected to, this will seem as if your requests have their origin in the University network / network of GWDG
