Network Maintenance - EDUROAM service

The maintenance has been completed.

History:
Friday, May 2, 2014 at 10:35 a.m.
The Network Group will be working with the Aruba vendor from 1:00 - 5:00pm today on necessary changes to our ClearPass appliance.  Some of the changes will be disruptive to the eduroam service.  If you know of a visitor that is trying to connect through the eduroam ssid, please refer them to the KSU Guest wireless.  Also let them know KSU Guest is not encrypted.  So they may want to take the precaution of initiating a vpn through their home network, if they are needing secure connections.

Currently, we have no K-Staters authenticating from off-campus. If a user reports issues, ask them to check whether Guest wireless is available in the remote institution.  The user can connect to guest and initiate a vpn tunnel back to our campus.  Instructions for initiating the vpn can be found at http://www.k-state.edu/its/security/vpn/   In order to insure all communication is encrypted, select the KStateVPNFull_Tunnel  profile, when initiating the vpn.

We are working to limit the eduroam outage, as much as possible.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
