Access to all Wharton HPC services is now limited to university networks only. For access to any of our HPC services from non-university networks, you will need to install Wharton’s VPN client software (Fortinet’s FortiClient) and be connected with it to our VPN server using your Wharton credentials (username & password).

Access to VPN

All Wharton faculty, PhD candidates, visiting faculty/scholars, and staff should by default have permission to access to the VPN. If after installation of the FortiClient on your computer you attempt to log in with your Wharton credentials and get an error, please contact your Wharton Academic Distributed Representative for assistance.
