Network Managers:  VPN Group Setup Information

As the campus moves towards full implementation of MPLS, individual VPN groups with small sets of IP addresses will be phased out.  Unfortunately, departmental VPN groups were created in the past as a form of authorization to various networks and resources on those networks. This practice does not scale to a campus our size. Authorization to resources is the responsibility of the resource owner and needs to be done at or near the resource.

Network Managers: VPN Ranges

UITS does not have a public list of every one of the individual VPN ranges for specific groups but the two ranges for the VPN are:
  • 150.125.112.0/22 
  • 10.138.0.0/17
  • Users receiving one ot the 10.138.0.0/17 addresses and going to an off campus site will have their IP address changed (NAT'd) to 150.135.211.246.
We consider the following networks the campus:
  • 150.135.0.0/16 
  • 128.196.0.0/16 
  • 172.16.0.0/12 
  • 192.12.69.0/24 
  • 198.151.212.0/24 
  • 204.27.250.0/24 
  • 206.207.240.0/23 
  • 208.68.28.0/22
