PennNet filtering may affect off-campus users beginning April 11

March 30, 2006 :: Dave Millar, University Security Officer

On April 11, the University will implement new security measures at Penn's external Internet gateway to block or redirect certain kinds of Internet traffic. On-campus users won't be affected by these changes; however, a small minority of users – those who use on-campus Windows-based services from remote locations (home, University offices without direct PennNet connectivity, and while traveling) -- may need to change configurations or employ new methods for accessing campus Windows servers and workstations remotely.

The new "edge filtering" measures will help protect Penn's network from future viruses and worms. More information about the edge filtering measures was published in the March 28 issue of Almanac. A web site with information and documentation for end users, LSPs, and system administrators is available at
