Off-Site Access

Internal web-sites

Some TRIUMF web-sites restrict content based on whether connections originate from on or off-site.  For example, internal announcements on the main web-site are only shown when the connection originates from TRIUMF.  Most such web-sites allow you to access the restricted content by logging in with your TRIUMF Identity credentials.

TRWIN File-shares

For security reasons, Windows file-sharing is blocked at the TRIUMF perimeter-firewall.  To enable access from off-site, the TRWIN file-shares are made available via other methods.  Each of these requires you to login using TRWIN credentials.

Virtual Private-Network (VPN)

A VPN is an encrypted connection between your off-site computer and TRIUMF.  It makes your connections to TRIUMF appear to originate from on-site without the restrictions of the perimeter firewall. A major use-case is for remote-desktop to Windows PCs.
