Getting Connected

You can stay connected from home, while traveling, and at sponsor and field sites by using one of APL's Remote Access options:

Cisco VPN

You can get to all of your APL files, tools, and applications using Cisco VPN. This option is available only when using an APL system.

To learn more, see the how-to videos.

Palo Alto GlobalProtect VPN

With Palo Alto GlobalProtect VPN, you can get to all of your APL files, tools, and applications when using an APL system. To get to basic only services (like e-mail or E-Time) from a non-APL system, use the web option at: https://gpvpnweb.jhuapl.edu.

Notes:

  • All realms (SES 24x7, SWSNet, and other special connections) have been added to Palo Alto GlobalProtect VPN and are automatically applied.
  • A “pause” feature similar to what was available in Pulse has been added to GlobalProtect as of 11/2/21.

APL View

APL View is available from any APL or personal system or device and provides access to your APL files, tools, and applications. APL View utilizes virtual machine (VM) technology instead of a VPN connection, however, your HID token is still required for login. Type https://aplview.jhuapl.edu in any web browser.

Pulse Secure VPN will not be available as of 12/15/21.
