Remote Access to NMSU Data and Systems


If you’re working from home and need to access files or systems that require a connection to NMSU’s network.

Access NMSU data and systems from home using the VPN

For access to NMSU data or systems, you’ll need to use NMSU’s Virtual Private Network (VPN). VPN allows you to create a secure network path from your home computer across the internet to NMSU’s data and systems. Once you download and login with the VPN software, you simply open your browser for access to the data and systems.  VPN is available for download at: vpn.nmsu.edu.

For help installing VPN on Windows, see Install Cisco VPN (Windows).  For help with Installation on Mac, see Install Cisco VPN (Mac).

Virtual Lab Computers

VMware Horizon allows users to access on-campus desktops/software from off-campus.  For more information on accessing NMSU’s virtual lab, see VMware Documentation.

Note: Up to 100 lab virtual machines can run concurrently.  If you receive the following error message, it means they are all in use, and you’ll have to try again later.
