VPN Service Enhancement: Split Tunnel AnyConnect Profile Available

pSCS Computing Facilities is pleased to announce that a new AnyConnect VPN profile that uses a split tunnel configuration is now available. Running the AnyConnect Service with the split tunnel profile means only traffic with a CMU destination IP address will go over the VPN tunnel. Traffic with a non-CMU destination IP address will go through the non-tunnel interface.

Running with the split tunnel profile will allow users on their home network to access local printers and devices while still having access to IP restricted CMU/SCS resources.

Note: SCS Facilities still recommends that the full tunnel SCS Anyconnect VPN service is used when connecting from either Carnegie Mellon's wireless network or any public wireless network.

For instructions on using the split tunnel AnyConnect Profile please refer to our Help Pages at:

Go to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Software section and click on the Readme file for your specific operating system.

Please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to with any questions or concerns regarding this change to the SCS VPN services.

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Help Desk
