Remote Working Service Upgrade
IT Services will be carrying out an upgrade to improve security on the Remote Working Service - also known as the VPN service – a service that provides staff and students with secure access to resources when working away from campus.
As part of this change, IT Services will:
1) Upgrade the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client service
2) Retire the web link Remote Working Portal (https://vpn.lboro.ac.uk) service
HOW WILL THE WORKS AFFECT ME?
These changes are scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 11th April 2018.
Remote Working Service (VPN)
• There will be a brief outage to users connected to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client service (between 7am – 8am) while the upgrade occurs.
Remote Working Portal
• IT Services will be contacting users of the web link Remote Working Portal service (https://vpn.lboro.ac.uk) to recommend they move to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client service.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO STUDENTS AND STAFF OF THE UNIVERSITY?
These changes will provide a more secure service for the benefit of all our users.
The upgrade is scheduled between 7am - 8am on Wednesday, 11th April 2018.
