VPN Update

Last week we updated on-campus, on-domain PCs to use the new VPN server. Notably, the new VPN server supports Windows 10 and OSX Yosemite.

On  September 22 at 6 AM, we are going to switch everyone over to using the new VPN. From that point forward, you will be using the new hardware when you go to vpn.mtu.edu.

Documentation on installation and usage of the new VPN client is available at www.it.mtu.edu/vpn.

If you have any issues, please contact IT at it-help@mtu.edu or 906-487-1111.


New guest wireless service

Information Technology has turned on a new guest wireless service which eliminates the need for University guests to register or have a temporary username/password. This experience is similar to what you typically find in hotels and coffee shops.

Guest wireless is available on all existing wireless access points. This service is only for unregistered users; individuals already associated with the MichiganTech wireless will be unable to join.

If you have guests visiting campus, simply have them connect to the MichiganTechGuest wireless SSID. After connecting, they can proceed to a web browser where they will need to read and accept the Terms of Service Agreement. Users will then be connected to the network.

If you have any questions, please contact IT help at it-help@mtu.edu  or at 906-487-1111.


Windows 10 and printing on campus

If you’ve recently upgraded to Windows 10 and were using the Papercut client to print to campus printers from your laptop, you will need to reinstall Papercut to return printing functionality.

The Papercut client can be downloaded here:

As always, if you have any questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at it-help@mtu.edu or call 906-487-1111.
