The UF VPN uses two-factor authentication for added security. Users must enter their GatorLink username and password, as well as a one-time code generated by their Duo Security mobile app or fob.
First, you need to have a valid GatorLink username and password. If you don’t have one, you can create one here: https://www.it.ufl.edu/gatorlink/.
Second, you will need to download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client on your device. This can be done by going to https://softwarelicensing.ufl.edu/ and searching for “Cisco AnyConnect.” Once it is installed, open the program and enter “vpn.ufl.edu” into the Connect To field.

3) Use a Chromecast-compatible VPN such asb Tunnelbear . This will allow you to keep your VPN connection active while still being able to cast.
