Migration to the External Wireless Zone for Clients

Trend Antivirus

This version of Officescan has a firewall that is pre-configured for BNL's Wireless Networks. When clients are not connected to the BNL Wireless Network, they must download any updates directly from Trend Micro. Therefore, please be sure to uninstall your current version of Trend and then install it again according to the directions in the following link. If you have any problems with first removing and the installing of the Trend client, please contact the Help Desk at 631-344-5522.

VPN Access

Once you have moved into the External Wireless Zone, you will no longer have access to BNL resources unless you connect through VPN. Using VPN and obtaining a RSA token for access is a very simple process.
