The TRIUMF VPN (Virtual Private Network) creates an encrypted connection between your off-site computer and TRIUMF.  It makes working from off-site more like working from on-site by making your connections to TRIUMF, UBC and UVic appear to originate from a TRIUMF network address.

While a TRIUMF VPN connection is active, your computer use TRIUMF name servers (DNS resolvers) and reverts to you default settings when the connection is closed.  This enables yout o resolve the addresses of some internal systems that cannot be resolved by external name servers.  i.e. you get the TRIUMF view of internal systems.
