ITS port changes coming August 11
July 9, 2014
In an effort to protect the University's network and data security, ITS will make changes to certain ports and protocols through its edge firewall and will close several ports at the firewall beginning Aug. 11. These ports are some of the most highly used vectors for attacking network resources on nearly any network in the world. Closing these ports will not prevent you from using them from within the University's network or from outside the network, but you may need to access resources using these ports differently than before. Visit the ITS website
for a list of ports to be closed.
