Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Languages: plpolski

VPN (Virtual Private Network) service is launched and available for both students and employees. It allows access to school resources from any place on the Internet, as if the computer was connected to the network in PJWSTK.

Automatic configuration

Just install the PJWSTK-VPN application:

It allows access to both university resources and further use of the Internet connection. In addition, it allows mapping network drives.

Manual mapping of network disks:

In case of issues with automatic mapping of disks (e.g. drive letter p:, w: or z: is already in use), manual mapping may be required. The full path is:

\\win-zet.pjwstk.edu.pl\Users\LOGIN – for disk z:
and
\\win-zet.pjwstk.edu.pl\public – for disk p:
and
\\www.pjwstk.edu.pl\LOGIN\

You will need to provide credentials from the PJWSTK domain.
