The FortiClient VPN:

  • Is a replacement for the Cisco AnyConnect VPN, which will be phased out by the end of 2018 Fall semester.
  • Will NOT provide access to library resources. This is a change from the Cisco Anyconnect VPN. Library resources should be accessed using the KSU Proxy.
    • If you are following web links from other resources such as Blackboard, course syllabi, or personal bookmarks, please check the URL and verify the link begins with the KSU Proxy Prefix:  https://proxy.library.kent.edu/login?url=
    • For more information on this, please visit the KSU Proxy article under the section "Having trouble accessing KSU Proxy from off Campus?"
