Who: Faculty and staff with Windows computers on the GCN

What: Enabling off-campus Windows updates for faculty/staff

When: Wednesday, September 11, 2019

On Wednesday, September 11, ITS will enable a feature that allows ITS to offer select software installs from AppCat while computers are not on campus. This feature helps ensure that UNCG’s Windows computers are patched and secure.

To enable the new off-campus installation feature, computers must be checked in on UNCG’s network. To perform this check-in, activate the VPN and leave it running for 30 minutes.

Additional communication regarding which applications will be available for installation while off campus is forthcoming.
