CSCS’s older firewalls (Mercury and Phobos) will no longer be available will no longer be available as of 22nd June 2021.
We have, and will continue to be, monitoring and contacting users still using the older services to advise them to update their client settings.
Additionally from the 16th June 2021 capacity will also be reduced in preparation for the removal of the old service. If you do not make the change immediately you may find times when you are unable to get on to the VPN if it has reached capacity.
If you’re still using one of our older services we ask that you please take a few minutes to make a minor update to your VPN client settings to move yourself over to the new VPN so that you don’t experience any interruption in your service. To do this please click on the relevant link below and follow the instructions on the page.
For Biomedical Campus users (including SRL and Douglas House): New Biomedical Campus VPN client settings page.
For Zoology users: New Zoology VPN client settings page.
For SLCU users: New SCLU VPN client settings page.
If you have problems with changing settings or once moved over please contact the CSCS Service Desk.
