Wireless, Wired and VPN Maintenance – July 15, 12:01AM-2:00AM

On Wednesday, July 15 between 12:01AM – 2:00AM Information Technology Services (ITS) will be making upgrades to infrastructure supporting services such as the wireless network, VPN and authenticated wired network (Paton College & MacPherson College). While most of these changes will occur in the background, wireless & authenticated wired users will be prompted to accept a new server certificate prior to connecting to the upgraded service. You should always be wary of clicking on random popups on your smartphone or laptop but if the certificate you are asked to accept has a name ending in “”, feel confident that accepting it is the right thing to do.
