Important Information about Microsoft Expression Web
We announced last year that we no longer have a site license for Microsoft Expression Web. We will be removing Expression Web from our Remote Application Server (Citrix). We still have a limited number of licenses for Expression Web for faculty/staff use to edit CCSU web sites, please contact the IT Help Desk to request to have it installed. Faculty, staff, and students may download a free copy of Expression Web to their personally-owned computers for personal use from http://www.microsoft.com/expression/. We have learned that Microsoft will be discontinuing support for Expression Web by 2015, therefore we recommend that you switch to Adobe Dreamweaver for web editing. Instructions for editing a CCSU web site with Adobe Dreamweaver are located here.
Important Information about the Virtual Private Network (VPN)
For security purposes, the ability to use the Network Connect feature of the VPN will be removed on Tuesday, March 12th. The Network Connect feature allowed for access to Banner INB and remote desktop connections from off-campus on potentially unsafe computers. Remote desktop connections are available via the Remote Application Server (Citrix). If you feel that you need this capability through the VPN, please e-mail the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org with a justification as to why you need it and your request will be considered

Need technical support in a classroom, but don’t have a phone available? Now you can initiate a technical support request via chat/instant message using the IT Help Desk Support icon on the desktop of the Instructor Workstation. Simply double-click the icon and a technical support analyst will assist you.
