  5. Restart your computer.
  6. Connect to the Internet.
  7. Find and launch Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client from the Start Menu.
  8. For the first time starting AnyConnect, you will be greeted with a blank box.
    If you are on-campus using the WiFi, enter: oncampus.eiu.edu
    If you are off-campus, enter perimeter.eiu.edu
  9. Hit Enter.
  10. You should see a pop-up requesting user credentials. Change the drop-down at the top to 'eiufas'.
