Graduate Portal and VPN Tips

Graduate Portal Web Address

After logging into the Graduate Portal, make sure the address bar reads
https://eis.rutgers.edu/GradPortal/Default.aspx
and not
https://eis.rutgers.edu/GradPortal/Default.aspx/
This page may not render properly or allow navigation. Correct the address by removing the final forward slash, "/".

VPN on Linux

Most linux distributions (for example, Fedora) come with their own VPN client bundled with their base distribution. One VPN client which works with the Rutgers VPN is:
vpnc - client for cisco vpn concentrator
The command
rpm -iq vpnc
will indicate whether this is installed. If installed, login as root and issue the command
/usr/sbin/vpnc
This will connect to the Rutgers VPN with the following translation from the Rutgers settings for the Cisco/Windows clients at OIT VPN Documentation or :
Information on the Microsoft Windows VPN Client
