eduroam gives you "network access". It does NOT give you "access to everything you need right now". Some Jacobs services are protected and not accessible from "the Internet", e.g. the JACOBS network home drive. In those cases, you still need VPN Access on top of eduroam connect.
What "network access" means in detail is determined by the institution you are currently connected at! While Jacobs University is very liberal in offering Internet access, other institutions potentially aren't. "plain web" access via port 80 (aka HTTP) and mostly port 443 (HTTPS) is usually the minimum, but other ports like 8443 (HTTPS to tomcat, e.g. teamwork) or VPN connection might be blocked by the remote institution! If some services work for you, and others don't, please contact the IT staff at the institution you are currently at and figure out their institution's eduroam Internet access policy.
