Campus Firewall Upgrades March 13 & 14

In the ongoing effort to improve security and resilience of the campus network, there will be service and maintenance work completed on the network firewall between 6:00 – 7:30 am March 13 & 14. This work may result in intermittent minor network outages lasting just 20 seconds to a couple minutes. The goal of this work is to realign firewall and network connections in preparations for increasing firewall availability by removing a potential single point of failure in the existing system. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the WSU Vancouver HelpDesk at or call 360-546-9770.
