access to ETH internal services via VPN

To access ETH internal services (Library,Printing,..) you need an IP number from the official ETH IP range. Unfortunatly the ETH is a little confused about which IP ranges are considered as ETH internal, so in case you have a wireless connection and experience that some services do not work anymore (or start working suddenly) - use VPN to make sure. See the followng link for more
