Some of Brown's software applications need a VPN connection when you're away from campus. These programs need to validate their licensing to ensure that they are allowed for members of the Brown Community.
If you are running the following applications from off-campus, you should connect to VPN prior to launching the program:
- ArcGIS Suite
- BIAS Peak
- Cycling'74 Suite
- LabView (for faculty and staff)
- Maple (not fully supported by the vendor over VPN)
- PGI Compilers
- PitStop Pro
CIS runs license management services for all of the above applications. Not all of these are available to the entire Brown community.
