  2. Click Connect
    Enter guvpn.georgetown.edu to start connection to VPN
  3. In the login window, perform the following:
    1. Make sure Group is set to Duo-two-factor.
      Select 'Duo-two-factor' from Group down-down list
    2. In the Username field, enter your NetID and NetID password. (Note: Your NetID may already be entered, so you may only need to enter your password.) In the example below, “jh123” is entered as the NetID.
    3.  In the Password field, enter your NetID password.
    4. In the Second Password field, enter either of the following as your Duo authentication method:

      • phone (Duo will call the number you set when setting up Duo. The call from Duo will originate from 202-687-4949, and a voice recording will prompt you to tap the star [*] key to log in.)
      • Last 9 digits of the CARD field located on your GOCard. (Duo will automatically approve your authentication.)
    5. Click OK.
