In order to better secure your data, reduce the risk associated with malicious attacks on our instrument computers and make our network run more efficiently, IMSERC will be blocking all external traffic at our firewall. This will not impact NUCORE or IMSERC’s website. Also, if you have data delivered by email directly from instruments, that will continue as before.
However, if you access data directly through FTP from outside NU, this will no longer work. In order to access data, you will need to log in to the NU VPN which requires an NU NetID. If you are currently accessing data by FTP and do not have a netID, please let Andy Ott know and I will have a NetID created for you and work to make sure the login and data transfer works before we turn on the firewall.
