Web Filtering

We perform some light web filtering to block websites known to harbour viruses and malware. This is done on an automatic basis by our web filtering software. If you encounter a blocked site, and believe this to be an error, please contact the IT Service Desk. Some sites may also be blocked manually by the IT department to facilitate the secure running and performance of the network as a whole.

Level of Access

All common required ports are open to the internet, however some are disabled for security best practices, including RDP, MSSQL, CIFs, and unsecure email protocols such as SMTP. IPSEC and SSL VPN services should work from within the eduroam network.

eduroam compliance 

The network at Bucks should be fully compliant with all eduroam requirements.
