How to Connect to LCC's Network Remotely from an LCC Mobile Device

College employees who are away from the college might occasionally need to connect to the college network through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to perform some work. To conserve resources, VPN connections should only be used for tasks that cannot be accomplished otherwise.
  • Applications that DO NOT require a VPN connection include: internet use, email, ctcLink, and Zoom.
  • Applications that do require a VPN include: BLUMEN, Edconnect, EDExpress, eJAS, and Secure92.
Note: Before getting started, you will need to submit a service request to IT Services to request remote access using your network account.
