The next step is to enter your SUU credentials. The VPN does require two-factor authentication for campus employees. In order to accomplish this, when you enter your password you have to append a comma (","), and then the 6-digit passcode generated by your FOB or the Duo Mobile smartphone app. So if you push the FOB button or tap the key icon in the Duo Mobile app, and get a code of 123456, and your password is "springtime", then your password for the VPN would be the following: springtime,123456. If you are an individual that is not required to use two-factor, then simply enter your password as is.

Enter your SUU username and password as explained above and click 'OK'.
