Off-Campus Access Discontinued

Web Proxy service connecting off-campus to campus systems is no longer available, effective July 2017.

Why is Web Proxy no longer offered off-campus?

  1. The Web Proxy service insecurely transmitted network credentials
  2. The infrastructure on which the Proxy operated was end-of-life and insecure.
  3. There are established services that are better for access from off-campus.

What should I use to connect instead?
