Library access issues

Library access issues

Revised 12:30 pm February 23, 2015

We have word from Cox that they believe the errors have been addressed. Please let us know if you are still unable to reach the library or other Creighton servers.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

In the early hours of Saturday morning a Cox server malfunctioned causing misdirection of web traffic for *.Creighton.edu internet addresses. The problem is being worked on. Unfortunately it may take several hours to be completely resolved. (It may be resolved as of 12:50 am 2/23/15 although no official all clear has been given.) In the meantime, if you need access to library resources; installing and using the VPN software seems to get around the problem. You can get the VPN software at: http://doit.creighton.edu/network-security/connecting-network/vpn-virtual-private-network. You can read more about VPN at: http://doit.creighton.edu/wireless-networking/vpn-virtual-private-network/vpn-faq. Once connected to VPN you should be able to use the links on the library website as usual. Thank you for your patience, we are sorry for your inconvenience.
