IT Rolls Out Standard VPN on Employee Computers

Published: January 7, 2021

College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Information Technology team has rolled out standard VPN to all employee-issued computers.

Those already familiar with and regularly log into CWI’s VPN and the ERP VPN (used for Colleague, Perceptive Content, etc.) may disregard the announcement.

Why is this important?

Logging into CWI’s network (either on campus or remotely via VPN) allows users and devices to:

  • Access CWI’s network drives for file storage (H:\ and I:\ drives for example)
  • Receive system updates
  • Maintain device inventory for CWI

What action do I need to take?

Remember to log your CWI issued computer into the network at least once a week so the above-listed items can be updated.

If you currently use a CWI issued computer and have never logged into CWI’s VPN, please follow the steps found in the HelpDesk FAQ 255.

Please contact the Help Desk with any questions at 208.562.3444.
