[Service Alert] Issues with VPN

Filed under: Network, [Service Alert], [Unresolved] — Kit Lindsley @ 2:15 pm

Last week we experienced an external issue with the VPN service which meant that you may have noticed some disruption.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this caused you at the time.

The issue has since been resolved but we continue to monitor the service very closely.

If you notice any problems this week please let the IT Helpdesk know as this helps us to track down any outstanding issues.
