How can i use METU VPN Service on Ubuntu OS installed devices?


With METU VPN Service, by installing a packaged program (VPN Client) on personal computers and/or mobile devices, our members and students could access to our campus network resources when they are outside the campus.

Warning: For users using VPN, the connection speed per user is defined as 8 Mbps. For this reason, in the cases that VPN connection is not necessary it is recommended that you disconnect from your VPN connection.

To use VPN Service on your Ubuntu OS installed device follow these steps:

Login to netregister.metu.edu.tr

Click VPN service and download the installation file for your Operating System.

Run the installer and Click Next, Install buttons where applicable. Enter your password for administrative tasks.


When the installation has finished, enter border.metu.edu.tr as Remote Server and your METU username and password into the fields as your connection credientials. Click Login. You may select the default authentication profile.


Service will open as Not Connected. If you want to Connect you can initiate a VPN connection by clicking Connect button on Connection Details tab. We recommended you to disconnect if it is not necessary as the connection speed per user is defined as 8 Mbps
