GlobalProtect VPN Setup Guide 

This article will show how to set up the GlobalProtect VPN module on your workstation.
These steps only apply to workstations (Windows or Mac).
If you are using a mobile device to connect, currently you need to continue to connect using the F5 Access client. 

  • Open a web browser to https://gp.olivet.edu
    • This link will only work from off-campus
    • If you are already connected to ONU using a VPN, you will need to disconnect from that VPN first.
  • The above link will attempt to detect active authentication but may redirect to the portal sign in page. 

  • Enter your Olivet credentials (including the @olivet.edu after the username) and hit the Next button or Enter. 
    (If prompted with the "Would like to stay signed in" prompt, either option will allow you to continue.)
