About split tunneling on Cisco AnyConnect VPN


This article is for anyone using Cisco AnyConnect VPN.

What is split tunneling?

VPN split tunneling allows you to send some app or device traffic through an encrypted VPN, while other apps or devices have direct access to the internet. This is especially useful if you want to take advantage of services that perform best when your location is known while also having secure access to potentially sensitive communications and data.

What does this mean to me?

Split tunneling will send traffic assigned to any university IP address – both public addresses (137.99.xx) and private addresses (10. xxx) – used on campus. Most of the time, this will not interfere with your ability to use non-university resources. However, few ISPs and companies may use the same parts of the private IP space in such a way that split tunneling does not allow you to access local/non-university resources.

If, when connected to a VPN, you discover that you have lost access to local resources on your home network, such as a network printer, this could be an indication of interference with your existing UConn network. Since UConn cannot virtually adjust our use of 10 spaces that interfere with your home network, you should coordinate with your ISP (Comcast, Cox, Spectrum, etc.) to move your home network to something more in line with best practices (eg, 192.168.xx).

Windows computers

If you are using a Windows PC, open a file Command Prompt or PowerShell windows By right-clicking on beginning button and choose one of the two options mentioned earlier. In the window, type ipconfig and press [enter]. You will see something similar to this.

Mac computers

what should I do?

This means that your network is, in effect, interfering with the UConn network. You have two options.

  1. Disconnect from the VPN to access local network resources, such as printers, scanners, and NAS devices.
  2. Call your ISP and ask them to help you move your local network to a file network.
