Upcoming Events

17:00 - 17:30
EITS is making security changes to certain UGA applications when people are accessing those applications from specified networks. After August 1, people connecting to student systems, financial systems, HR/payroll system, Hummingbird/Host Explorer and QMF will need to use the UGA VPN (Virtual Private Network) if connecting via the residential hall, Miller Learning Center (MLC) or PAWS-Secure wireless networks. Please note this change only applies to people using those networks for those applications. Most people on campus use UGA’s standard wired network and will not be affected. This will also not affect students accessing OASIS web.

Impact On End Users
Users on these three networks will need to use the VPN to access mainframe systems

Actions Being Taken
This will be enacted on August 1st at 5:00 pm

EITS Network Engineering will perform maintenance at 00:00 on 08/02/2014 to re-enable the primary Internet firewall to restore Internet resiliency. The primary Internet firewall was disabled on 07/10/2014 (status posting https://status.uga.edu/incident?id=21662) due to a corruption of the firewall memory.

Impact On End Users
Users can expect 3-12 minute of Internet service disruption while routing changes propagate through the Internet. Additionally, session sensitive traffic may need to be reestablished (VPN site-to-site connections, ssh sessions, etc) following the transition. Internal access to external services (including: Internet and email) may be affected. External access to internal services (including: WWW, hosted web services, Archpass, VPN connections, internal Site-to-site VPN tunnels, ugamail, etc.) may be affected. If you experience issues with Internet connectivity following the maintenance window, please contact the EITS Help Desk at 706-542-3106.

Actions Being Taken
Primary firewall will be returned to service.
