External emails not delivered

Thursday, May 6th, 2021

Since Friday, 30 April, many external emails have not been delivered to SU staff and student mailboxes. These messages have been placed under quarantine by Microsoft for security reasons.

The issue was reported to Microsoft earlier this week and is receiving urgent attention from both Microsoft’s engineers as well as our own system engineers. 

We realise that important messages might have been queued and therefore we will release all pending messages tomorrow ((Friday, 7 May) afternoon at 16:00 as a temporary solution to the problem.

Please take note that messages could include spam or phishing emails and you need to be extra careful when dealing with these particular messages.

We apologise for the inconvenience and hope that the situation will be resolved soon. 
Any enquiries regarding this can be logged on the ICT Partner Portal.

Eduroam: New certificate

Thursday, April 8th, 2021

Since the beginning of this year the MatiesWiFi service is no longer available for any staff or students for access to WiFi on campus. Instead you will be required to use eduroam for wireless connections. This change was mainly made to ensure better security. More information.  

To further improve security and comply to eduroam’s GEANT guidelines we had to implement a new security certificate. This certificate will lead to better performance and speed up the sign-on process in future.

If you connect and sign on to eduroam on a Windows device, depending on the versions, you will be prompted with the messages below. This will happen only once. Click on Connect and continue working as usual.  Similar messages will appear if you work on devices with Linux or Apple operating systems.

NB. Please take note that you need to enter your full sun email address when signing on to eduroam.

Windows 8.1

 

Windows 10

 

 

 

Interactive campus map shows WiFi in buildings

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

Almost a year ago Facilities Management introduced their custom-made, interactive campus map. This online application was developed in collaboration with Information Technology and Esri South Africa and is particularly handy for new students who are not yet familiar with our campus. More on the app’s functionality.

One of the useful functions that has been added over time is a layer which indicates WiFi availability in buildings. To access the WiFi layer, just follow the instructions below. 

  1. Open https://campusmap.sun.ac.za/in your browser.
  2. Select Proceed. 

 

3. Click on the layers-icon (circled in red below)

 

4. Select Campus WiFi Coverage

 

Although the campus map is live, it is continuously improved and updated as new needs arise from its users. 

For enquiries and suggestions, you are welcome to  contact Facilities Management.
