Comment:        In accordance with Audit requirements and the ongoing Campus Firewall Project, campus networks will be positioned behind a perimeter firewall. 

The network router serving multiple locations around West campus will be moved on the morning of August 26th, beginning at 7:00 AM. 

Academic Services switches in the following buildings will be affected:

UC
PAC
BAU
CIF
REC
V1
MKV
CLV
ECH

Residence switches will NOT be affected.

At this time, the default firewall policy to deny incoming connections will be in effect *unless* other policies have already been arranged with ISS. These policies will take precedent over the default. 

There may be some disruption of network communication between the aforementioned locations and areas outside the firewall, while the work is completed. Network service on wired and wireless networks may be interrupted briefly. 

After the scheduled move time, if you experience unusual network behaviour, please submit an RT describing the problem.
