Configuring Your Computer for IPSec

IPSec for Windows

Note: You MUST have administrative privileges to complete these procedures. If you are connecting to disk services from an off-campus location, use the university virtual private network (VPN).

  1. Ask your Technical Support Contact (TSC) if he or she needs to apply the IPSec group policy to your Austin Active Directory organizational unit.

  2. If your computer is on campus but not joined to Austin Active Directory, complete the following steps:

    1. Download the IPSec Configuration Installer from the Utilities section of BevoWare (UT EID required).

    2. Run (or open) the installer file, IPSecCfg.exe.

    3. In the WinZip Self-Extractor dialog box, click the Unzip button.

    4. Follow the instructions in the installation wizard to configure your computer for IPSec.

IPSec for Mac OS X 10.7.3 - 10.7.4 (beta)

Installing the Austin Disk IPSec Utility

Note: You must have administrator rights on your Mac to follow this procedure. If you do not have administrator rights, contact your desktop support personnel.

  1. Download the Austin Disk IPSec Utility beta from the BevoWare site.
  2. Open the .pkg file and run through the installation wizard.

Verifying the Austin Disk IPSec Utility is installed

  1. In the Finder, open the Go menu, and then select Go to Folder.
  2. Enter “/Library”.
  3. If the AustinDiskIPSec folder exists, the utility should be installed correctly and you should be able to connect to Austin Disk via SMB from on campus. Otherwise, the utility needs to be installed before you can use SMB to connect to Austin Disk on campus.
