Add VPN to Internet Explorer Trusted Sites

This document explains how to add VPN to your list of trusted sites in Internet Explorer.


The VPN uses https to establish the connection to the UWCX network. In order for the VPN to establish the initial connection, we must first add the URL to the Internet Explorer Trusted Sites.

  1. Open Internet Explorer (IE version 9 shown below).

  2. Right click the gear icon and choose Internet Options from the drop-down menu.

  3. Select the Security tab along the top of the window.

  4. Click the Trusted sites icon.

  5. Click on the Sites button.

  6. Click inside the box below Add this website to the zone, type https://uwcxvpn.uwex.uwc.edu, and click Add.

  7. The VPN URL should now appear under the Websites box, as shown below. Click Close.

  8. Click OK in the Internet Options window to return to the main Internet Explorer window.
