  • Network – Certain External Websites Inaccessible
    September 21, 2017 10:05 AM

    Update: This issue seems to be resolved as we can now access websites that were not working any longer.  Some websites that were not working included Wells Fargo and LogMeIn.  Those sites are now accessible.  If you are still seeing issues accessing websites please let the Service Desk know.

    Thank you!
    We are currently investigating an issue of certain websites not being accessible.  The problem seems to be downstream from the university network and we are reaching out to our Internet providers to troubleshoot.

    Thank you for your patience.
