VPN access for students

Since 16 Sep 2022, VPN access for students has been split. The VPN group unimr-vpn-students, which already exists, only allows access to literature and publishing offers. For further access please use the group unimr-vpn-students-password+2FA; this requires two-factor authentication (e.g. "extended password" consisting of password with directly attached TAN). The following table provides an overview of which services require 2-factor authentication.
