Printers At CLASSE

For a comprehensive list of available printers, including location and capabilities, please see https://wiki.classe.cornell.edu/Computing/PrinterList. CLASSE IT continually monitors our printers and user requirements, and expects to revisit printer deployments and locations after this fall's office moves are complete.

Rebooting lnx201, Tuesday 28-Sep-2021 @ 10AM

lnx201, the central CLASSE login node, will be rebooted at 10AM Tuesday, 28-Sep-2021. Please close your session and logout before 10AM.

ScreenConnect Update: Tuesday, 28-Sep-2021 @ 10:30 AM

On Tuesday, 28-Sep-2021, starting at 10:30 AM, the ScreenConnect service will be unavailable for up to an hour for a server update. During this time, you will be disconnected from existing remote sessions, and you will not be able to start new remote sessions. We will distribute client updates during the next standard maintenance window.

CLASSE Duo: Two-Factor Authentication

In light of the increased threat posed by ransomware and account compromises, CLASSE is adopting the use of Duo two-factor authentication for enhanced security of web services and remote logins. CLASSE Duo operates very similarly to Cornell's Duo service, although a separate CLASSE registration is required. To enroll in CLASSE Duo, please see these instructions for our web-based management portal. CLASSE Duo is currently required for the new VPN (Pritunl), and we plan to enable it for additional services in the future. If you have any questions or concerns about CLASSE Duo, please submit a ServiceRequest.



General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
