ITS will be performing an upgrade to the Global Protect VPN client on Tuesday, September 28th at 10pm. If you are connected to the SWTC VPN at this time you may notice an interruption of service for 2-3 minutes while the newest client is installed. If you are not connected to the VPN your software will update the next time you start the client. When connecting to the VPN you will get a popup in the lower right corner of you screen the looks like the screenshot below:
The popup signal the start the uninstall process and the
install of the new client. The process takes 2-5 minutes to complete

icon will disappear from your task tray. When it reappears the
installation has completed and you can once again connect to the VPN with the
newly installed client.
