Support for Faculty and Staff with their Personally-Owned Computers

  • Provide documentation on how to configure IT-supported email software so faculty and staff can access their Amherst College email accounts when away from the campus.
  • Provide access to a proxy server and instructions for configuring computers outside the Amherst network to allow faculty and staff to reach protected resources on campus, e.g. electronic databases provided by the Robert Frost Library.
  • Provide Virtual Private Network (VPN) and instructions on how to configure it for those whose uses require it.
