Tags VPN login


Using your college provisioned device, you can easily run the application by following these steps.  Please see the Related Articles if you haven't installed the software yet.  Ensure you are connected to an Internet connection that is external to the College.


To Start the VPN

Method 1:

  • Click the Start Button - (The Windows logo displayed in the bottom left of your screen)
  • Search through the menu and click Cisco AnyConnect Security Mobility

Method 2: 

  • On the right side of the Start Button click into the Search field
  • Type: Cisco Any Connect Security Mobility (You may only need to type Cisco before Windows displays the application)
  • Click on the application to start it.

The program will open and VPN.SAULTCOLLEGE.CA/MFA or SC-VPN should be pre-populated if it has been setup on your PC.  If this field isn't populated

  • Type or click on SC-VPN and click Connect

Otherwise, simply

  • Click Connect

You will now be presented with a Login screen

  1. USERNAME: {College username}
  2. Password: {College Password}
  3. Click OK


You are now connected to the College Network as if you are at the College.
You should now see an icon in the system tray on the taskbar, bottom right of your screen, to indicate the connection was successful.

To verify that you have been connected successfully you can:

  • Look for the Cisco Anyconnect icon in the system tray on the taskbar.  If you see an engaged lock on the icon you know you are connected

You may have to click on the up arrow, in the system tray on the taskbar to see hidden icons.
You can click it once to start the login process instead of navigating the Start Menu.
You can disconnect from the VPN by either right-clicking on the Cisco AnyConnect icon in the system tray on the taskbar and click Disconnect or by opening the application from the Start menu and clicking Disconnect.
NOTE:   In order to access your college resources you will need to know the links and steps to complete these connections.  See Relate Articles for more information.
