  1. Download and install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN from the Chrome Web Store.
  2. Go to Settings in Chrome and create a VPN entry.
    • Connection to Name = UCI
    • Server =
  3. Go to Settings and click on “VPN”, then select “Cisco AnyConnect” and “UCI.”

NOTE: In the near future, OIT will provide an alternate way to login to the VPN using 'SAML authentication'. Due to software limitations, Chromebook users will not be able to use the SAML VPN tunnels. You will need to continue using the standard DEFAULT-UCI or UCIFULL tunnels when connecting to the VPN.
