PulseSecure VPN

Users need to open a VPN connection to the UWyo Network in order to access the petaLibrary from off campus. UWIT has set up Pulse Secure as the VPN client to the UWyo network.

NOTE: These instructions may work for other linux distributions, but we only support RHEL, CentOS, and Ubuntu.


Download

RHEL/CentOS
sudo wget -O /tmp/PulseSecureRHEL.zip https://web.petalibrary.arcc.uwyo.edu/support/PulseSecureRHEL.zip --no-check-certificate
sudo unzip tmp/PulseSecureRHEL.zip
sudo yum upgrade
sudo yum -y install /tmp/PulseSecureRHEL/ps-pulse-linux-9.0r3.0-b923-centos-rhel-64-bit-installer.rpm
Ubuntu/Debian
sudo wget -O /tmp/PulseSecureDebian.zip https://web.petalibrary.arcc.uwyo.edu/support/PulseSecureDebian.zip --no-check-certificate

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/PulseSecureDebian/ps-pulse-linux-9.0r3.0-b923-ubuntu-debian-64-bit-installer.deb
sudo /usr/local/pulse/PulseClient_x86_64.sh install_dependency_packages

Configuration

Start the PulseSecure VPN client graphically using the search menu and type the keyword "pulse". A window should open up and you may click on the "+" icon to add a new connection:

Enter your UWyo credentials and proceed by clicking the "Sign In" button. You will then be prompted for an additional step that requires two-factor authentication. The window should look like:

Please proceed by selecting the appropriate second factor. Once you credentials have been completely validated, the main window will show that you're now connected as the "Connect" button has now changed to a "Disconnect" button.
