VPN User Update – Fermilab


Individuals who have centrally managed Windows or Mac computers should have the certificates installed already. To test this:

1. Open your AnyConnect VPN application
2. In the “Connect” field, type “vpntest.fnal.gov”
3. Click the Connect button.
No need to log in. If the certificate is installed correctly, you will be prompted to log in but do not need to do this. You should NOT see any warnings about connecting to an untrusted site.

If you do see a warning, or if you have a Linux machine or a non-centrally-managed device, follow the appropriate instructions for your device:

Windows: https://fermi.servicenowservices.com/wp?id=kb_article&sys_id=KB0012906
Mac: https://fermi.servicenowservices.com/wp?id=kb_article&sys_id=KB0012919
Mobile: https://fermi.servicenowservices.com/wp?id=kb_article&sys_id=KB0012905
Linux: https://fermi.servicenowservices.com/wp?id=kb_article&sys_id=KB0012914

Once you have successfully tested the new Fermilab CA root certificates, you can continue to use the current VPN.FNAL.GOV system as usual until next steps in the migration process are announced.
