Via VPN access (Virtual Private Networking), the BITS enables students and employees worldwide access to special services of Bielefeld University such as research databases of the library or the personal network drive.
To establish a VPN connection to Bielefeld University you need a VPN client. The client software (Cisco AnyConnect VPN client) is provided for Windows, MacOS and Linux operating systems such as smartphones/tablets.
(Download for smartphones/tablets in the respective appstore)
Before downloading, please check whether the Cisco AnyConnect client is perhaps already installed on the (business) computer. In the Windows Start menu or under Programs. An installation is then no longer necessary.
Initial password for students:

Which data may be stored in sciebo results from the IT security policy for cloud storage. Questions, for example, about the protection requirements, can be answered by the decentralized IT supervision or the IT security officer.
sciebo does not have a backup of the data, i.e. the data stored here is not secured by the continuous creation of backup copies. However, the storage systems are very well protected against data loss by technical measures. Data that you have accidentally overwritten or deleted yourself can usually be restored via the recycle bin in the web interface or on your local system, or via the versioning function. However, this level of protection is not comparable to a classic backup. Not least for this reason, official data should continue to be stored primarily on the university's network drives. Data requiring a high level of protection may only be stored on these network drives. Further regulations result from the IT security policy for cloud storage.
There are a variety of ways to store, synchronize or share data with others:
Furthermore there are clients for the following operating systems:
Download the different ones from the clients.
Currently, desktop clients cannot sync files that contain a colon in the file name. Currently, the only workaround is to rename the affected data and replace the colon with another character.
The most common cause is that staff, people with whom the data is to be shared, have registered but have not yet made an initial registration on the web interface (https://uni-bielefeld.sciebo.de).
Only with this registration the account is activated in Sciebo.
In the case of guests or staff, people from other departments, a nightly check of the address books must also be waited for.
Guest accounts can be created via the my.sciebo portal. The guests are entered with an e-mail address. This is only possible with addresses that do not belong to one of the participant institutions (e.g. @uni-bielefeld.de, @uni-muenster.de). Detailed instructions can be found on the sciebo help page.
