VPN for SVI devices - Windows

This article will cover how to connect to the SVI VPN while off-site.

The SVI VPN can only be configured with the help of SVI IT due to administrative privileges being required during the installation process.


  1. The Sophos VPN application should be showing in your taskbar with the icon of traffic lights.

  2. To connect, right click the icon and select “Connect”

  3. You will be prompted for your SVI username & password.

  4. While connecting, the traffic lights will turn yellow before turning green on successful connection.

  5. You will be able to connect to SVI network shares as required.

NOTE: It is recommended you copy the documents you wish to work on to your machine. Working over the VPN can have unintended consequences in the event of disconnection which will lose work.
