VPN Service Upgrade - Wednesday 27 April 2011

We are pleased to advise that on Wednesday 27th April 2011, we will be upgrading our VPN (Virtual Private Network) service in order to improve functionality for Windows 7 PCs. The VPN service will be unavailable between 11.30 and 12.30.  

What is happening?

What should you do?

The next time you use the VPN service, you will be prompted to install the “Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway” - these replace the “Whale Communications client components” installed on any previous use of the VPN. The installation process may require you to restart your PC.  

Further details of the VPN service can be found at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/vpn and if you have any problems with this upgrade, please contact the Service Desk on the contact details below.
