AnyConnect VPN upgrade Sunday, Nov. 20

Nov. 17, 2022

The new version will download and install the next time you connect to VPN

This Sunday, Nov. 20, from 7:30 p.m.–11 p.m., UITS will be upgrading the Cisco AnyConnect software, which allows your computer to connect to the University of Arizona VPN (virtual private network). The VPN is required to access certain systems and applications for University and departmental use from offsite. The AnyCorrect upgrade corrects connection and performance issues. 

The next time you connect to VPN after the upgrade, you will experience a pause while the new version automatically downloads and installs. Then you will see a popup notification to restart your computer to use the upgraded version. You may decline, continue your current VPN session, and restart at a later time. 

If you have any issues with the upgrade or with connecting to the VPN, call the 24/7 Support Center at 520-626-TECH (8324) or start a chat at 247.arizona.edu.
