  • Put in a name that will identify the VPN connection to you
  • Put in a URL of https://vpn.leeds.ac.uk/
  • Put in your username (if you wish)
  • If asked leave the certificate as None; the Realm as Blank; the Role as Blank
  • Click Save
  • Click Connect, you may be prompted to accept a server certificate
  • Enter your University username/password
  • You may see a warning pop up, please tick the 'I trust this application' box and OK
  • You are now on the University network
