Original Alert

Starting July 11, 2017 users who connect to their Penn State Access Account Storage Space (PASS) through the Network File System (NFS) gateway while off campus will need to install and use the VPN "AnyConnect" client application prior to using NFS. This change is an added security measure for those accessing resources on the PASS via NFS from outside the Penn State campus.

The VPN AnyConnect client is available at downloads.its.psu.edu under "Connecting to Penn State." Instructions for installing VPN AnyConnect are available at http://kb.its.psu.edu/article/891.

This change is described in ServiceNow as CHG0042958.
