WREN VPN Installation instructions for Non-Registered Devices

VPN INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR NON-REGISTERED DEVICES

Users need to have Cisco AnyConnect program on their computers to connect.  Most computers have it already installed and should be in their programs list under a folder named “Cisco”.

ENSURE YOU ARE CONNECTED TO ANY NETWORK OTHER THAN WREN.

USERS CANNOT BE CONNECTED TO ANY WREN NETWORK (WIFI OR WIRED).

If the program is missing or corrupt it can be downloaded by opening a browser and going to https://vpn.westpoint.edu

On that page select the correct network “WREN_Cadets” or “WREN_SF” for staff and faculty. Then
enter your Office365 Username (first.last@westpoint.edu) and password in the appropriate boxes.

  • Click “Logon
  • On the following page click “Download for Windows”.

  • After it is downloaded run the program (IE click “Run,” Chrome select the file name that appears at the bottom of the window).
  • Follow the instructions of the setup wizard.

*If it is already installed the user will have the option to modify, repair, or uninstall and should select repair if their program is corrupt.  If that still fails to correct the issue, have them uninstall the program, and then return to this page and install a fresh version.

ALL USERS SHOULD NOW BE IN THE SAME STATE WITH ANYCONNECT INSTALLED

  • And should click “Connect
  • Select the appropriate network they should connect to either WREN_Cadets or WREN_SF for Staff and Faculty.  Enter their Office 365 email address and password and click OK.

  • The AnyConnect pop-up will show the steps of connecting to the network and then the user will see the following notification on the bottom right of their screen when successfully connected.
