VPN connection to the Munich university network

Important: the Cisco AnyConnect VPN access to the LRZ will be replaced by the OpenVPN based access EduVPN in October 2021. If you are still using the AnyConnect client, please update your VPN client software.

To install the new EduVPN client, go to https://doku.lrz.de/display/PUBLIC/VPN+-+eduVPN and follow the instructions for your operating system. You need a working LMU campus account (username@campus.lmu.de) or an LRZ account.

When you run the EduVPN program for the first time, enter lmu.de to find your institute, then select “Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität via LRZ-VPN”:

The program will then open your web browser so that you can authenticate to the LMU web server and to allow the VPN client to connect:

When you have completed the authentication process in the web browser, select “Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität via LRZ-VPN” in the VPN client:

You can easily connect and disconnect the VPN using the central switch in the VPN client:

Your authentication is valid for 90 days, after which the VPN client will again ask you authenticate via the LMU web site.
