The use of files in VPN portal has been enabled again
In April, the use of the disk shares and the handling of files in the VPN portal (https://sa.oulu.fi) of the university had to be disabled for information security reasons because of the vulnerability in Pulse Connect Secure software.
The software vendor has fixed the vulnerability and the update has been installed in the VPN portal of the university by ICT Services. The disk shares have been returned into use, so the files can be processed in an old way through the VPN portal.
However, the handling of the files on the network drives is much easier on remote desktops than in the VPN portal. On the remote desktops, you can also utilise the software licensed by the university. You can use the remote desktops from home through OpenVPN connection.
