Log in to campus computer for the first time from off campus (Windows)
How can a user login to a campus computer for the first time when off campus.
Faculty and Staff (domain) computers require network authentication to log on the first time. Computers must be able to communicate with the credential manager on Stout's network; while off campus. VPN connection can provide that communication.

3. Choose the wireless network login and enter the proper credentials for a home or commercial Wi-Fi network
4. Once the wireless connection is established, click on the network Icon in the lower-right-hand corner of the screen; a login screen will a appear to log into UW-Stout VPN SSTP
