Connecting to the VPN and disconnecting
- Open the Start menu by clicking the Windows icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. Find Pulse Secure among the programs.
- The settings for remote connection have been configured in the application, so you can go directly to the Connection menu and click Connect under the VPN-staff connection.
- The application launches a new window prompting for username and password. Enter your username in the User name field and your password in the Password field. Finally, click Connect.
- Pulse Secure will notify you once the connection has been established. The notification will open in a new window and close automatically after a while. The VPN is connected until you click the Disconnect button next to the VPN-staff connection in the main window of the application.
