VPN-connection at DMJX

VPN or Virtual Private Network is the term for a technique used to create a connection to systems and services that would otherwise only be available if you were on one of DMJX’s campuses. The purpose of the VPN is therefore to make it possible and secure to access systems and services even if you are outside DMJX’s addresses and the wireless network.

A prerequisite for being able to log on to the VPN is that you have installed two-factor authentication. See the instructions – Click here >>

VPN – Mac

There is a new VPN connection at DMJX, so if you have a computer that the school does NOT manage AND you have installed the “old” VPN, then the old client must be uninstalled.

If you do NOT have the old client on your mac, you can proceed directly to “Installing the Cisco Secure client” – otherwise you must first uninstall the old client.

Uninstall the “old client”.

  • Open “Apps” – You can find that from within your Finder.
  • Then find the folder “Cisco” and then the program “Uninstall AnyConnect”
  • Double-click on “Uninstall AnyConnect” and then uninstall the program.

Once the program is uninstalled, we need the new version on your computer.

Installing the Cisco Secure client – Written guidance

Your Mac must be at least version 11.x (Big Sur). You can see which version your Mac has by clicking on the “apple” in the top left corner and then “About”

  • Go to vpn.dmjx.dk
  • In the dropdown menu you select ”06 – DMJX – Studerende”
  • Then log in with your DMJX email (if you are outside the school’s network, you will be asked for two-factor authentication)
  • Choose to download the file
  • Open the file you downloaded.
  • Double click on “Cisco-secure-client….”
  • Follow the instructions in the installer.
  • When the package is almost installed, you will get a warning that a system extension is blocked.
  • Select “Open System Settings”
    • From here it may look a little different – depending on how up to date your mac is – the below is from mac version 13.xxx (Ventura))

  • Click on “Allow”/”Tillad” (for older operating systems for Mac, you must first click on the padlock and unlock the computer – then click on “Allow”/”Tillad”)

  • You must then approve with your code (unless you have had to unlock via the padlock before).
  • Now the window below will appear – select “Allow”/”Tillad”

  • You can now close the remaining windows and VPN connection is installed on your computer.
