Now click »Connect«. In the next window you find 2 Choices. Either »tunnel all« or »tunnel Uni Weimar«. If you choose »tunnel all« any network traffic uses the VPN Tunnel. This is needed if you work from a VPN-Socket ( wallmounts ) or via „WLAN-BUW“.

If using the profile »tunnel Uni Weimar« a VPN Connection will be established only to and from the university. Any other connections should work normally and don ́t use VPN. This setting should be used from private DSL connections.
