Current status

Campus VPN Service. ( 

UPDATE: Remedial work has been carried out and we no longer expect there to be any more issues with users connecting to the VPN. Later in the week a permanent fix will be put in place.

We have received some calls where users trying to connect to the service, are experiencing intermittent authentication problems when entering their password, forcing users to try multiple times before success. If this happens:

  • Please continue and try to re-connect, and eventually you should succeed.
  • Please log a call with the service desk, giving as much detail as possible.

We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and will publish further updates on this page, pending investigation, as to when we can have a fix in place. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience during this time.
