    Then repeat this process of adding a new trustpoint and installing the certificate file for 'DigiCertCA.crt'.
    You should then see the Certificate listed with the Trustpoint Name you assigned to it.

  4. Then under Remote Access VPN, expand 'Certificate Management' to 'Identity Certificates'.
    Select the identity you created for the CSR with the 'Expiry Date' shown as pending and click Install, then select yourdomaincom.crt and click Install ID Certificate File. Once installed the Expiry Date will no longer show 'Pending'.

  5. The certificate now needs to be enabled. On the lower left, click Advanced >SSL Settings. Then, select the interface you want SSL enabled for and click Edit.

How To Uninstall Cisco Anyconnect



Stanford's VPN allows you to connect to Stanford's network as if you were on campus, making access to restricted services possible. E ticket magazine pdf. To connect to the VPN from your Mac you need to install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client.

Two types of VPN are available:

  • Default Stanford (split-tunnel). When using Stanford's VPN from home, we generally recommend using the Default Stanford split-tunnel VPN. This routes and encrypts all traffic going to Stanford sites and systems through the Stanford network as if you were on campus. All non-Stanford traffic proceeds to its destination directly.
  • Full Traffic (non-split-tunnel). This encrypts all internet traffic from your computer but may inadvertently block you from using resources on your local network, such as a networked printer at home. If you are traveling or using wi-fi in an untrusted location like a coffee shop or hotel, you may wish to encrypt all of your internet traffic through the Full Traffic non-split-tunnel VPN to provide an additional layer of security.

You can select the type of VPN you want to use each time you connect.
