 +=====New VPN Tunneling Options===== 
 +New connection tunneling options available with Pulse Secure VPN; Split or Full Tunnel.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +**Split Tunnel:** Only transmits data destined for Olin systems, services and/or networks through the vpn tunnel to Olin. All other data will be transmitted directly through your local network connection to it's destination. ​ This allows you to access and use any devices connected to your home network like printers, other computers, etc.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +**Full tunnel:** Routes **//all//** data to/from your computer to/through Olin's network via the vpn tunnel. ​ **Important note:** Full Tunnel prevents you from accessing network resources on your local/home network such as printers or other computers.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +We recommend using Split Tunnel from home and Full Tunnel elsewhere, particularly on insecure and/or open wireless networks.

-=======VPN Behavioral changes ============ +
-With the introduction of the Pulse Secure VPN client Olin has implemented what is known as split tunneling. +
-This allows users to utilize their home Internet connection for all non-Olin resources and not have traffic routed through Olin's network unless it is destined for Olin resources. +
-Library resources are a prime example, previously you could go directly to these resources and you would be coming from an Olin owned IP address. This is no longer the case and you will need to use the Library web site to gain access to these resources. +
