Get quick access to VPN with /duop

(Published June 2023)

When you login to the Virtual Private Network (VPN), you are required to use two-factor authentication with DUO. The default login screen will show VPN: Please enter your Tufts username and password with a drop down that links to Then you will get the login screen with 3 fields 1) Username, 2) Password, and 3) How to authenticate and you need to type in PUSH.

If you amend the default screen to go to, by adding the 'p' to the end the system automatically sends you a PUSH and eliminates the need to type that in every time. See screen shots below.
