Intended for:

Users who want to install Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client on a non-Fermilab managed Windows or Mac computer in order to connect to Fermilab VPN


Scenario / Use Case:

Install Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client on a non-Fermilab managed Windows or Mac computer


  

Instructions: 

Before you begin:

If you do not have a Fermilab-managed computer, you must install and configure security certificates on every device you use for VPN before you can connect to Fermilab VPN. Follow the instructions to install and configure the certificates here.  

 

1. Launch a browser and go to https://vpn.fnal.gov (You must use HTTPS--note the trailing "s.")

2. Log in.

If you have an RSA (soft or hard) token:

  1. Select Group: SiteVPN-RSA
  1. Next to USERNAME, type your Fermilab username.
  2. Next to PASSWORD, type your SERVICES password.
  3. Next to 2nd Password, type your PIN (see instructions for setting up your RSA token PIN), followed by RSA token code with no spaces in between.

Note: If you use an Android phone, depending on your phone model you may be required to enter your PIN in your RSA token application on your phone. If that’s the case, you should just type the 6-digit RSA token code in the 2nd password field.

  1. Click Login. This will prompt you to download the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client installation file.

 

If you have a YubiKey:

  1. Insert your YubiKey into your computer and wait for confirmation that it is configured.
  2. Select Group: SiteVPN-YubiKey-Cert

  1. Enter your Yubikey PIN. (See instructions for resetting your PIN)
