This tutorial shows the process of downloading and setting up the Cisco AnyConnect application to connect to CU Boulder's VPN service on macOS 10.14 Mojave, 10.15 Catalina and 11.0 Big Sur.
Please note: If you have upgraded to macOS 11.0 Big Sur, be sure to upgrade to the most recent version of Cisco AnyConnect (version 4.9) to avoid compatibility issues.
If you are currently using AnyConnect for another VPN, you do not need to reinstall the application. You only need to add the new profile, as shown in the remaining steps.
Type vpn.colorado.edu into the VPN: textfield, then click Connect.
*Note: Advanced users and system administrators should enter vpn.colorado.edu/limited in this field. Custom VPNs in the format of vpn.colorado.edu with /thecustomaddress appended should also be entered in this field, if applicable.
You will now be connected to the CU Boulder VPN service. All your internet activity will be routed securely through the VPN.
*Note: For future connections, use steps 7 - 9. The vpn.colorado.edu connection can now be selected from the the drop-down menu in step 5.
