As of August 2016, Kent State users do not need to download and use the VPN in order to access the library's databases or resources. The VPN has been replaced by KSU Proxy. Now when you try to access one of the library's databases or content, you will be prompted to login to KSU Proxy with your Flashline username and password. You do not need to download or install any special software in order to use the proxy. More information about the proxy can be found on the Connect from Off-Campus page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Beginning spring semester 2019, KSU Proxy will be the only method available for off-campus access to University Library resources. The old Cisco VPN was discontinued, and its replacement, the KSU FortiClient VPN, will not work for accessing library resources.
