Secondary Password Changing for UNC’s VPN Access

The University provides remote users secure remote access to campus resources via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateway at https://vpn.unc.edu. Remote users log in with their Onyen and a secondary password for additional security. That secondary password (along with installation instructions for VPN) is available through the Onyen-protected Help page at http://help.unc.edu/help/vpn-installation-and-clients.

  1. On September 30 at 8:00 a.m., the secondary password for the general "UNCCampus" VPN group will be changed.
  2. The new password is currently available at http://help.unc.edu/help/vpn-installation-and-clients/.
  3. No action is required until September 30, at which point the new password will need to be entered at log on.

For assistance with this change, please contact your local IT Support or OIS at https://help.med.unc.edu
