Starting Spring 2023, access to services running on “high ports” (ie: network ports numbered 1024 and higher) on remotely accessible MCECS Linux systems will be blocked to external users. You will still be able to ssh into those systems. However, if you are running any services (programs) on these systems that listen at high ports, you will need to connect to the VPN first.
Systems affected by this change:
- ada.cs.pdx.edu (aka linux.cs.pdx.edu)
- ruby.cecs.pdx.edu and rita.cecs.pdx.edu
- sftp.cecs.pdx.edu (aka warpgate.cs.pdx.edu)
- quizor systems
