ITS will be upgrading the University’s firewall system on Sunday May 7, 2017. This upgrade will replace the current firewalls with Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW). The NGFWs are high-performance network security appliances that add many new features and capabilities. The new devices will bring increased security to the campus community and greater flexibility to meet the university's business and educational needs.
The biggest impact to end users will be the method used for Remote Desktop access to workstations or servers. Starting on May 7, off-campus users will need to first connect to VPN (AnyConnect) before using Remote Desktop Connection to directly access their workstations. Remote Desktop services on RDS.unf.edu will be unaffected. Please review the situations below to see if you may be impacted by this change.
Any questions about the upcoming change can be directed to ITSecurity@unf.edu
