UW IT now offers a free VPN service called Husky OnNet. You can read more about it and download the client app on their website.
Since their service duplicates ours, we have discontinued our service so we can focus our time and efforts on other improvements and innovations that benefit our department and users.
The SEFS VPN service on portal.sefs.uw.edu is now restored. If you encounter any issues connecting please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our VPN service (portal.sefs.uw.edu) has been having issues this week and is unfortunately unavailable until further notice. Restoration of the service requires UWIT intervention and we’re actively working with them.
In the interim, you can use Gibson as an alternative to effectively get yourself onto campus. With the latest Windows client you can directly access your local drives from the VM in order to upload/download files, or as before you can use a USB device and attach it to the VM through the menu bar.
We apologize for the inconvenience and will let everyone who has contacted us directly know when the service is restored. If you haven’t already and would like to know as soon as it’s up, just send a quick note to email@example.com. We will also post an update here on the blog.
We’re aware of an issue involving the Wyse P25 zero clients pictured below and have opened a ticket with the vendor to resolve the problem.
There is no ETA at this time.
We have a fix but need users of the devices still encountering the problem to contact us at 206-616-7365 with the IP address of the device.
