There can be a conflict between the VPN and our EZProxy (which allows off campus access to library articles.) This means that if you are connected to the VPN you may be denied access to our articles even though you have authenticated in the UM-Flint system.
A workaround for this issue is to use the tool LabAnywhere which is available through ITS. Using LabAnywhere, your computer will function as though it is an ITS computer on a lab here on campus. This can also solve issues that occur when you are working from a place that has a firewall that is blocking access.
