VPN is Here!
ATTENTION! One Time Password (OTP) keys for remote access to the UHN network will be phased out by the end of March. For any questions about the use of OTP keys moving forward, please email DigitalResearch@uhn.ca.
For UHN staff to connect to the research network remotely, please use VPN (Virtual Private Network) where possible:
- For more information about how to set this up, please go to the Working Remotely with VPN page (uhnresearch.ca -> NEWS -> Working Remotely with VPN)
- Note: When connecting through this method, you may lose connection to local resources such as your printer at home
Other helpful resources: RIS Helpdesk.
There are several ways to check in and access internal or protected resources from afar. Identify your options by choosing your identity. Are you staff or are you a collaborator (TASHN hospitals, vendors, etc.)? Browse below to choose your options and tools for accessing Windows desktops & servers, internal web applications and internal websites remotely.
I'm a Collaborator
Remote Access - Full Portal
This is the authenticator for the full remote access portal that serves both staff and our collaborators. You will need one-time passwords (OTPs) to proceed. One-time passwords are temporary passwords used only once to gain a window of opportunity to connect to resources that would otherwise be reachable only from inside the network. Once you use a password, it is no longer valid. Upon unlocking your portal, some resources may require additional credentials (desktops, web applications, etc.). If you do not already have one-time passwords, please call the Helpdesk at 416-581-7777 for assistance.
