Network Outage

September 22, 2014

Update: 13:15 - HUIT discovered the issue is on some old firewall equipment that they are in the process of migrating and retiring.  The network is currently stables, but it may be possible we will see further latency as they work through this issue.

As of 10:00am this morning (Sept 22nd) we are experiencing networking issues; connection to the RCE will be intermittent if not completely unavailable. We are working with Harvard University IT to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.
