Switching Off The Dial In Modem Service

  Stanley Cannon IT/CS

For a number of years IT division operated a modem dial in network which permitted (under certain conditions) worldwide access to the CERN computer network. For various reasons, mostly security and Y2K non compatibility, this access possibility will be definitively removed from service at the end of this year. In the interim the service has been reduced and the old modem lines have been disabled. The CERN recommended alternatives are to:

  1. use ACB
  2. log in via an ISP (Internet Service Provider)
For those people who need time to migrate to an alternative method of access,  please contact one of the following.
