WebWorK FireWall Instructions

The Mathematics Department's WebWork server is behind the campus firewall, and public access from outside the University's network is not allowed. In order to access WebWork from off-campus, you will need to use a VPN client.  Directions for using the VPN are given below. The instructions below may be out of date, and we recommend that you use the directions provided by EITS which are more likely to be actively maintained.

Please follow these directions to get started.  

NOTE:  Steps 1 - 3 only have to be done once for every electronic device you plan on using.  

Step 1:  Download Duo Mobile for your mobile device.

Go to your the app store for your device and download Duo Mobile. This should be a free application.

Step 2:  Activate Duo Mobile.

Go to this webpage: and follow the directions.  This will sync your Duo Mobile app with the University of Georgia firewall.

Step 3:  Download the VPN Client.

Go to this webpage and follow the instructions for the device you plan on using:  

Now that you have the VPN client installed, these are the steps you need to do in order to access WebWork off-campus:

Step 4:  Launch Cisco AnyConnect.

Open up the program "Cisco AnyConnect", type in "", and click "Connect".


Step 5:  Two-Step Log in.

Log in using your myID/password.  The second password is a numeric key obtained from DuoMobile (mobile app).  Alternatively, you can type "push" and it will give you a phone alert to approve your login.  Cisco AnyConnect must fully be operational in order to move to the next step.


Step 6:  You are now ready to use WebWork!  You will also get an email notification everytime you log into the VPN network.

Note: If you have any further questions, please contact your instructor.
