Why can't I connect to the VPN from on-campus?

The VPN is intended to provide remote access to campus. VPN's understanding of the network consists of an "inside" and an "outside." When you try to use it from on-campus, it's seeing a client on the inside trying to reach the inside network. It doesn't understand how to route traffic to your client to make that connection work. The VPN appliances have been configured to to treat some networks, including RedRover-Secure, as external to Cornell. You can use those services to connect to the VPN for the purposes of testing.
