What group should I use for AnyConnect VPN?

Two group options exist when connecting to AnyConnect: General-Use and Library-Resources, and there are some differences to be aware of to choose the best option for your needs.

VPN Group Options

The below table reflects the differences between the two groups.

Access to University system resources (Banner, Travel & Expense Management (TEM), etc)
Access to Departmental resources (Remote desktop to office computer, file shares, etc)
Access to UIC Library resources
Most, with login required. Full-text articles via Google Scholar, JSTOR or PubMed are not available
Your network connection flows through UIC's networkOnly for access to UIC resources (i.e. streaming Netflix does not go through the VPN)
