BarNet SSL VPN Service

This document describes the basics of the BarNet SSL VPN Service.

Software needed

The software required is downloaded during the installation.

Installation instructions

Point your webbrowser to (note the HTTPS), select My own computer and click on Connect. Then download the file offered.

When you click on the icon of the downloaded software, it will install the Citrix VNP Software.

Login with your BarNet username and password.

If it accepts your username and password, you will get a secure VPN connection. You can access your computer in chambers via the normal Windows shares or the desktop via the VNC viewer.

When done, select Disconnect from the icon in the task menu.


  • Only traffic towards the BarNet network will be secured, the rest will go via the normal unsecure internet.
  • Firewall programs like Norton Internet Security are known not to like this setup. Temporary disabling the Personal Firewall overcomes this problem.
