Firewall update for April 20

posted in: Tech Talk | 0

Information Technology will be providing regular updates on the installation of the college’s new firewall. This update is for the week of April 20 – April 27, 2017.

This week’s work is all about laying the groundwork for the rest of the project. We are currently working on basic configuration of the new firewall. As part of the firewall upgrade we are also performing upgrades to our core router/switch for the college. These core router/switch upgrades will create greater system redundancy and improved reliability when the new firewall is in place.

As of now, we have no planned downtime related to the firewall in the coming week.

Planned work –

  1. Configure the core router/switch infrastructure

  2. Basic configuration of the new firewall

Work completed last week –

Last week we received the firewall on campus and started upgrades to the core switching and basic firewall configuration.
