Subject: Internet outage on Sunday morning
When: Sunday, November 4th, 7:00am-11:00am
There will be a short internet outage for ECU on Sunday morning, November 4th, while we upgrade the network firewalls during our normal maintenance window. The outage will last about 30 minutes, and will occur sometime between 7:00am and 11:00am.
During the outage ECU users will be affected in the following ways:
– On-campus users will not be able to access the internet (but will be able to access ECU’s network and ECU resources like Onestop, Blackboard and the ECU website) during the outage.
– Off-campus users will not be able to access ECU’s resources such as Onestop, Blackboard or ECU’s website during the outage. VPN access will allow users to connect to ECU resources (but not connect back out to the internet).
