Why might I need VPN?

What software, services, applications (etc) will require me to utilize VPN for off site access?

VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows a computer located off-campus to simulate an on-campus connection. Certain university resources, such as Employee Self-Serve, the IBM, and other servers will require you to run VPN if you are trying to access those services from off-campus.
