1. If you are on a Parkland-owned Windows machine and you have to change your ParklandOne password off-site, it is highly recommended that you connect to the VPN first, otherwise you won't be able to use your new password to sign back onto the machine until you've reestablished connection with the Parkland network. If you are on a Parkland-owned Mac and you have to change your ParklandOne password off-site, it is required that you connect to the VPN first. Please see ParklandOne Password Change - How Does This Impact Parkland Machine Login for Employees? for more details.
2. In the past, users had to delete their old VPN profile and create a new profile that reflected their updated password. This is no longer the case.
3. If you changed your password while connected to the VPN, your connection to the VPN will continue to work until you reboot or restart. To connect to the VPN after a reboot or a restart, please see below.
