You VPN password is the password which you use for setting up a VPN connection to UGent.
For NEW accounts, granted after May 2, 2013, the VPN password and the central password are the same.
For EXISTING accounts, active before May 2, 2013, the VPN password differs from the central password, unless you take action.
From 2 passwords to 1?
In places you previously entered (or saved) your VPN password, you will need to enter the new password.

- setting up a VPN connection
- connecting wirelessly, using Eduroam
You can only reach the page holding the form from a computer which is connected to the UGent network (UGentNet) or the HoGent Network (HNET) or the network of HoWest. If you are connecting from outside of the university or college network (e.g. from home via your own internet provider), you first need to establish a VPN connection, or you should to surf to the page via Athena (using the Internet Explorer browser in the 'Office' folder).
