Solis VPN – Update February 24

Dear labusers,

Some of you may work from home. If you want to access the project folders from at home you need to make a connection via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Fortunately, ITS is making it safer to access the folders. Unfortunately, this changes the way you were used to access the VPN. The university want to do this via 2 Factor Authorization (2FA). The change occurs this Thursday January 30th. Once we know how this is going to work, we’ll try to give you an update.

For now, if you are planning to work at home this Thursday or Friday, expect difficulties and consider working @UU.

UPDATE Thursday January 30: the new VPN seems to work fine, the instructions in the howto have been updated.

UPDATE Monday February 24: the new VPN actually does NOT seem to work for students, we’re trying to get this fixed.
