The University firewall will be replaced on Sunday and the University Internet connection will be increased to 10Gbits. During the switch over and testing time, from 10am until 5pm, there will be no internet services and the following will not be reachable.

  • Internet from the University network (including via Resnet  and Library computers)
  • Library Catalogue
  • University Website
  • Moodle
  • Turnitin from Moodle
  • VPN and remote connection to University computers
  • remote connection
  • Email send and receive
  • Connection to UTC Bolton and UTC Bolton services

We apologise for the disruption. This work is critical and has already been rescheduled a number of time to minimise the disruption to University activities. As this is a major change it is possible there may be residual problems over the early part of next week. Engineers will be on site to resolve any that arise.
