IT Services will be carrying out an upgrade to improve security on the Remote Working Service – also known as the VPN service – a service that provides staff and students with secure access to resources when working away from campus.
As part of this change, IT Services will:
- Upgrade the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client service2
- Retire the web link Remote Working Portal (https://vpn.lboro.ac.uk) service
These changes are scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 11th April 2018.

- There will be a brief outage to users connected to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client service (between 7am – 8am) while the upgrade occurs.
Remote Working Portal
