In order to improve security, ACCC will be blocking telnet (port 23) at the Internet border on Friday, August 23, at 7:00am. Telnet has been replaced by SSH protocol which uses encryption to protect data in transit.
 
Starting on Friday, August 23, telnet connections will require the use of AnyConnect VPN to connect from an off-campus network. For more information on the AnyConnect VPN service, please visit: https://accc.uic.edu/service/vpn
