How do I connect to the VPN in Windows?
Note: You will be asked to reboot your computer as soon as the installation of this software is complete. It is critical that you reboot your computer when asked to do so. You can return to this page after rebooting to complete the configuration process.

Start the Nortel Network's Extranet Access Client software installation program. When you're asked to install and run as an application or service, choose Application(default). Click on Next to continue.



Reboot your computer when asked to do so.

Start the 'Extranet Access Client' program found in the newly created Nortel Networks folder. If you're asked to run the Connection Wizard then click on Yes and proceed to the next step. Otherwise, start the connection wizard from the File menu options of the Extranet Access Client program.



Pick a name for the connection profile, the description is optional. Click on Next to continue.



For the Authentication type select "Username and Password". Click on Next to continue.



Enter your VPN user name and password in the "User Name" and "Password" fields (respectively). Click on Next to continue.


Choose "No, I do not have a Group ID and Group Password". Click on Next to continue.


Enter toy.cloudconnector.com as the host name of the Extranet Access Switch at the remote network. Click on Next to continue.


If you already have an active dial up (modem or cable) connection then choose "No, I do not want to dial first". If you're already connected to the Internet when running the VPN client software you don't need to Dial-up to establish a connection. Click on Next to continue.



You're done with the connection wizard! Click on Finish.



You'll see a screen displaying the information entered via the connection wizard. Click on Connect to start your VPN connection. You only need to run the connection wizard once, the next time you want to establish a VPN connection simply start the Extranet Access Client program found in the Nortel Networks Folder.
