We are currently seeing a high number of DOS (Denial Of Service) attacks coming from off campus and these are impeding the performance of our firewall. As such, there is intermittent connectivity from EECS to campus and the Internet. We are investigating to remedy the problem.

Firewall issue resolved:
With a team effort, the problem was traced to DOS attack from Canada which was sinking the firewall. Many thanks to all who helped solve the problem.
