Remote Access

Many PCC online services are available from off-campus, just as they are from on-campus.  For example, you can connect to MyPCC and D2L the same way whether you are on campus or not, using the same links and login.  However, some online services used by employees require additional protection when accessed from offsite.

In these cases, IT offers several solutions that permit remote access while still protecting PCC’s data.  For example, we support VPN (virtual private network) connections that allow your offsite computer to see the same network and applications that you get on-campus.  We’re also rolling out newer technologies that offer security without the need of VPN, such as Banner Secure Access and Splashtop.

If you need to access PCC systems or services from offsite, and you’re not able to do so using the same links that you do from on-campus, please contact the Service Desk and we will work with you to help.
