Title: Microsoft Always-On VPN: a seamless VPN experience for users?
People want to use their laptop as their primary computer no matter where they are (in their office, around campus, at home, or travelling). And they want all the services, support and security we provide for desktop computers. Microsoft Always-ON VPN promised to provide the holy grail of seamless always-on secure connectivity without non-technical users having to do anything new (just login as usual). We’ll share what we learned in this adventure., and how it is working for our end-users and IT staff.


John has worked as an IT professional in the Computer Sciences department since 1997 doing a variety of Unix and Windows admin tasks. Most recently, he has been focused on Windows desktop and server administration.
