Nov 1, 2018 – Remote Desktop Change

Washington University Information Technology (WashU IT) has identified that machines on the network which utilize the remote desktop service have been the targets of attempted hacking.

In order to secure the network WashU IT Network Engineering will block the port which will disable use of remote desktop from off campus.  Effective November 1, if you are off campus and wish to use remote desktop, you will first connect to the University with a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
