Internet & Connectivity Updates
On June 18th Information Technology will replace the security certificate used to secure connections to Eduroam WiFi on campus. All UNI-owned and managed devices will be automatically reconfigured for the new connection and nothing will be required. However, personally owned laptops, tablets, and smart phones will potentially be asked to accept a new security certificate the first time they connect to Eduroam WiFi on June 17th. These prompts could look something like the screen captures below.
If you have questions or trouble connecting to Eduroaom WiFi on campus, please visit this IT support article. You can also contact your IT support by submitting a "Get IT Help" request from the Service Hub Portal.
Information Technology is reviewing wireless networking coverage on campus in an effort to make sure all classrooms and office spaces are sufficiently covered. If you are aware of a space on campus that may lack the needed wireless coverage, please let IT know by submitting a servicehub request for a wireless coverage review. IT intends to completely upgrade the campus wireless network in the next 3 years (1/3 each year).
On Friday, February 1, major DNS (Domain Name System) software and public DNS providers will remove support for workarounds accommodating authoritative DNS servers that don’t follow published operational standards. UNI's DNS servers are compliant with the necessary standards, however, sites using authoritative servers that don’t meet standards may find their resources unreachable by large portions of the Internet. To be clear, the solution for an unreachable site lies with the unreachable site, not with UNI. Additional information is here.
