For  certain publishers’ portals (eg Science Direct, UpToDate or JAMA network) the portal does not work correctly. We recommend you the following procedure: Installing Pulse Secure CHUV staff (French only) in order to install Pulse secure, which avoids access issues. This also allows to avoid the interferences with the software Zotero.

The CHUV also provides its staff additional documentation to work remotely.
