Retirement of HKUVPN1 Service

HKUVPN1 has been in service for more than a decade. In view of the obsolescence of the hardware used for, and the security limitation associated with, HKUVPN1, we are going to retire this service on March 1, 2015. In early February, individual HKUVPN1 account owners were notified of the service termination and requested to complete the migration to HKUVPN2 latest by February 28. HKUVPN2, which has been in production for students and staff, provides better performance and more secure VPN connections using standard-based IPSec technology.
