Firewall

The firewall is set up to secure all data and machines in IIS. All unnessary services are not permitted through the firewall. This may lead to inefficiency of use. However the security level is also raised. Note that the firewall blocks all unpermitted connections. If you need to set up a server, please apply to the computer center. To access IIS internal resources outside of IIS, you may use the following ways.
Email:
  • Use webmail or secure SMTPs, POP3s, IMAPs to access the mail server.
  • If you are not in IIS networks and need to access internal resources, please connect through VPN (server:140.109.16.129 or 140.109.17.254). Please remember to logout when you finish the job.
  • If you are in IIS networks and have trouble passing through firewall, please connect throught VPN (server: 140.109.17.129) to go across the firewall. Then you can work as usual. Please remember to logout when you finish the job.
