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

The network router in OPT will be moved on the morning of September 2nd, beginning at 7:00 AM. 

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. The fiber path that connects OPT to campus will also be rerouted during the window.

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