VPN Upgrades

This entry was posted by on Wednesday, 29 July, 2020 at

We would like to inform you of several upcoming updates to Georgia Tech’s VPNs, which you use to connect to PACE from off-campus locations.

The GlobalProtect VPN client will be updated on August 4, 8-10 PM. This will improve support for macOS 10.15.4+ (removing the Legacy System Extension message) and address other bugs. There will be an automatic update, but you may choose to test it early, as described at faq.oit.gatech.edu/content/how-do-i-get-started-globalprotect-campus-vpn#labportal.

The AnyConnect VPN client will also be getting upgraded. As with previous upgrades, your client will automatically download the new client the first time you attempt to connect after the update. You may choose to upgrade early by connecting your client to dev.vpn.gatech.edu, then returning to the normal address when the update is installed. The PACE VPN (used for CUI/ITAR clusters only) will be upgraded on August 4, 8-10 PM. The anyc VPN (used for most PACE resources and the rest of the GT campus) will be upgraded on August 11, 8-10 PM.

Please visit status.gatech.edu for further details on all pending updates to Georgia Tech’s VPN service.
