K-State Information Technology Services will replace the firewall at the campus border from 12:01-6 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 10. The university’s Polytechnic and Olathe campuses will experience the same outage as the Manhattan campus.
This will disrupt all campus connections to the internet and will impact anyone on the campus network attempting to connect to services off campus as well as anyone off campus trying to connect to services hosted on campus.
If you experience connectivity problems at or after 8 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 10, please contact the IT Help Desk at 785-532-7722 or by email — as available — at firstname.lastname@example.org. Progress updates will be posted periodically as available throughout the maintenance period to the IT Status Page.
