Fortinet is the new VPN solution for James Cook University, replacing Global Protect. To install and create a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection to JCU on a computer running a Mac OSX Operating System follow these steps.
If you are using a JCU owned computer that is currently on-campus then launch the Parallels Application Portal and search for FortiClient VPN and Install it. Please contact the IT HelpDesk if you require assistance.
If you are on a personal computer or using a JCU computer from off-campus, then download the FortiClient VPN and install it.
Note: The default “JCU VPN – Split” connection gives you access to internal JCU servers and file shares only. To access external web services, journals and other JCU subscription services through the University network (rather than directly through your ISP’s) please use the “JCU VPN – Full” connection.
