VPN Hours Extended
Attention Faculty/Staff with VPN accounts:
Due to increased requests for 24-hour access, users in the “Staff” VPN group can now connect to the Alverno network at any time. You are no longer required to login between the hours of 7:00 am and 10:00 pm central time.
- Please be aware that Technology Services runs data backup jobs every night. Files that are “in use” or open during backups are skipped and cannot be restored. We suggest making copies of files that you will be working on and copying them back to shared drives when you are done, otherwise your open files may not get backed up.
- VPN is included when network downtime is announced, for example during the monthly shutdowns, so there will be times when VPN will not be available.
- Finally, as a reminder, please do not leave your VPN session open longer than necessary. A limited number of people are allowed to connect to the VPN at one time, so please disconnect when you are not using the connection. Be kind to your fellow VPN users.
